Being reminded that you are alive, and can live through anything brings hope and love into your life you never would have known otherwise.

I JUMPED

I AS STOOD THE AT RIVER THE RAN EDGE BELOW OF ME THE BRIDGE

I AS STOOD CARS AT RUSHED THE AND EDGE ROARED OF BEHIND THE ME BRIDGE

I AS STOOD I AT BENT THE MY EDGE KNEES OF AND THE PUSHED BRIDGE OFF THE EDGE

WHEN I JUMPED FROM THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE

AS I HIT THE WATER IT WAS AS IF THE COLD DRILLED TO THE CENTER OF MY BONES

AS I HIT THE WATER IT WAS HARD AS STONE

I DIDN'T DIE THAT NIGHT I'M NOT SURE IF I WANTED TO

I DIDN'T DIE THAT NIGHT I'M NOT SURE I WOULD FOLLOWED THROUGH

I JUMPED OFF THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE

WHEN I SURFACED AGAIN I FELT LIKE SOMEONE KNEW

I IN WATER SAT THE BELOW SHIVERING FROM THE COLD

I IN WATER SAT THE BELOW AND AS THE CURRENT MOVED I WAS PULLED

I IN WATER SAT THE BELOW TILL MY BODY CAME TO SHORE

AND WHEN I HIT THE SHORE I STAYED THERE COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY UNSURE

I LAID ON THE SHORELINE AS I WATCHED THE NIGHT SKY

I LAID ON THE SHORELINE AS MY HEART BEAT JUST FLUTTERED ON BY

AND WHEN I BEGAN TO THINK CLEARLY I UNDERSTOOD WHAT I DID

WHEN I JUMPED FROM THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE

IT WASN'T A CRY FOR HELP OR A WANT OF SELF HARM IT WASN'T A JOKE OR A FALSE ALARM

I JUMPED OFF THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE

TO REMIND MYSELF I WAS ALIVE TO REMIND MYSELF TO ALWAYS STRIVE

I JUMPED OFF THE EDGE OF THE BRIDGE

AND SHOWED THE WORLD

I CAN SURVIVE
