Fear of flying

For every action a reaction,
for every step a consequence.
What happens then when you are sleep walking
and you should step on an innocent ant
or find yourself waking on the window ledge
with fifty stories of the unknown below you
and a life wasted behind you?
It seems we are born awake,
all senses attuned to all life around us
but with years
each step becomes more automated,
each practical necessity
another step toward being sedated
by things,
by doing,
by acquiring,
until the only way we can reawaken to
just being
is when the universe one day
takes us to the edge and says-
stay a voyeur on this ledge forever or
start flying
.
