High Diving Board (First Draft)
Standing on the high diving board
looking down
so many eyes on me . . . waiting impatiently
I turn around
wondering . . . what’s worse?
chickening out
hearing scaredy cat, loser, wimp and other taunts 
as I slink down the ladder 
each step taking me further and further away
from courage
from  taking the leap
All these years later
I am still on that diving board
hoping
praying
doubting
wondering
can I do it?
