Abseiling

My nervous knees shaking
Harnessed and ready to descend
Watching children practicing 
and looking at me
The teachers taking pictures of me,
nervous and frightened
Logan encouraging me saying:
“Don’t be nervous .You can do it.”
Feeling the air rushing across my face
Here I go, descending 
Closing my eyes
until I reach the grass
Slowly going down
with fright in my mind
Reached the grass 
without noticing
Listening to my friends say:
“Dominic, you did it!!”
Opening my eyes
Looking at myself, unharnessed.
