That feeling before you leap
of exhilaration, anticipation, fear and ecstasy.
That feeling when you think it might happen
and you're terrified and shaky and oh so blessed.
That feeling when you know it's best for you
but that one -- or ten -- niggling feeling won't leave.
That feeling of what if you're wrong
and sickness settles in the space under your lungs.
And that feeling you get when you just do it anyway.
