Near the end of the edge, truth is there is no end,
But only a different story into which I descend.
A drop so high, seemingly endless,
But I am near the edge of my life’s end.
Falling alongside the wall of time,
Truth is there is no wall, but only a cliff to grip 
As my soul slips into death as I breathe my last breath.

    This was a good capture of such a harrowing moment of decisiveness. But, like any good story, there's a beginning and an end. Make the leap into better tomorrows, today. Well done.

    Incomplete and unclear.

    Exactly how one's life is, after having jumped. This person falling from a cliff, has left his life incomplete. His fate is unclear, but it is clear he is falling towards his death here.
