Jump !

The taunting voices all screaming, “Jump”!
I was trembling on the rocky ledge…
Gathering courage for my first lake dive,
I trusted fate and stepped off the edge.

Fifty years later I’m haunted,
By the same screaming voices back then…
I lie in bed growing older,
Hearing their screams, “Jump!”, again.
