All it took

all-it-took

All it took

was a gentle breeze

to push her off the edge

one last breath and she was finished

She was almost to the limit

she had come so far

but this obstacle

would surely

tear her apart

She only paused a moment

she took a second to think

All it took

was a moment

Just enough time to blink

She sat and stared

at the obstacle in front of her

She would never have dared

to challenge this barrier

All it took

was a gentle breeze

drifting from just behind her

that pushed her that extra inch

She braced herself for the hard drop

that would surely crush her bones

then realized she wasn’t falling

but soaring over the obstacle

free like that gentle breeze

 drifting through the sky
