The Fall

It feels a bit like I’m falling from the highest of heights into the deepest depths of darkness,

Every so often I catch hold of something and pull myself onto a ledge, but my ledges are faulty and they always let go, and I find myself plummeting into the darkest of holes.

But what if I believed that Your arms were long enough to reach me and pull me up, and You were strong enough to hold me?

Would I allow You to save me from my fiery death? Would I let myself be taken from this familiar darkness?

There’s no point in denying because I guess You already know, sometimes I enjoy the falling. After all, it’s far easier to fall than it is to climb, but You’re not asking me to climb up out of this hell by myself, You’re asking me to stop falling, stand still and wait for You to carry me home.

So if You’re listening now, I’m waiting here on what appears to be the last shaky ledge before I hit the ground.

If You’re listening now, I believe Your arms are more than strong enough, and I believe You’ll help me out.


A Chapter Ending

I’ve been employed in a popular coffee chain for just over eight months now, and it’s been an experience, to say the least.

Tonight is my last shift and I’m excited to be free of the drama and stress, not to mention the endless beeping and some of the awful smells, but I think I’m going to miss it.

To say it was all bad would be a lie because I learned a lot about myself in eight months; I have become much more confident, and learned some valuable life skills like patience and dealing with idiots difficult people. 

Between the customers and my coworkers, though, I can honestly say I’ve met some of the greatest people in my town, maybe even in the whole world. There are no words to express my affection for the people I’ve met at work, and I will be forever indebted to them for making my first “real job” experience great, and for teaching me so many things. I will never be the quiet, “unsure of everything” person I was eight months ago again.

But alas, every chapter must end somewhere and I guess mine will end tonight, hopefully on a high note, and hopefully it’ll lead me into another exciting adventure, but only time will tell.
