I Threw Caution to the Wind

I threw caution to the wind
As I stood there on the edge
Would she carry me over?
Or just leave me on the ledge?

I threw caution to the wind
Never did I really believe
That the wind was ever kind
And waiting to give relief

I threw caution to the wind
And soared upon her wings
Never really knowing
The freedom that she brings

I threw caution to the wind
And what a pleasant surprise
The wind carried back to me
All that my heart desires

I threw caution to the wind
                   I threw caution to the wind
                                      I threw caution to the wind
                                                        And the wind carried you to me!

    What is most significant here is your ability of transcending anything into higher levels. Your will of casting negativity and clinging to Hope in nature and in humans is a progressive and well-appreciated. Today's poem is a novel view to a natural element. Within it, there is a lot of hidden elements. As humans, we are unable to foresee future - this mysterious realm. But with the blade of Positivity, darkness would only be gone to enable beams of happiness afterwards. I adore your writings.
