The poem(s) are below...


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.
