Thrill



Thrill
becomes terror
when the illusion of no control
becomes no control
(or awareness of no control).
The hill remains the same.
The fall remains inevitable.
Gravity always wins
but never keeps track.
Bravery is not something you feel,
it's something you do
(or don't do) when you realize
you were born at the top
and already rolling.
