Free Fall

 

Just because you are

On your way down

 

While there is time

Mid your free fall

To clutch at straws

 

Why not choose to

Reach for the stars ..

Even when you are in the gutter it isn't too late to reach for the stars, but it is better to reach for them before you get there. So yes, if you find yourself free falling, be quick do something about it. A very sound piece of advice here Neville. You gave this reader some fine imagery of free falling without a parachute. Not recommended. Have a good day, though it is bloomin breezy in this neck of the woods and chilly too. Coat weather again.

Bigger n better than Breakin Bad Bunny :)
When I was riding the roller coaster of youth, if I felt myself "going down", as the young are wont to do, it seemed like I may as well just let go & crash big time, here let me pour on some booze & desperate sex to heighten the fall. Your poem is nicely subtle & concise about this matter . . . so much easier to pick oneself up from a mid-point in a fall, than to scrape up the splattered carcass (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Indeed, even if the bottom has dropped out, don't stop reaching. Despair and death are first cousins.

What do you think got me in this mess in the first place? I could have been perfectly happy with wee sexy Sadie from down the village, but no, I had to go for glory with all those exotic and classy names, such as Shontelle and Destiny. (And it wasn't me that said they are stripper names, that's what you thought... And you'd be right)
I've been falling for ages mate. I've even resigned myself to the fateful splat to come and stopped flapping my arms.

Indeed, if one can clutch for the straws, one can also try to reach for the stars. It’s just a matter of changing an outlook, or a strategy or a tactical move. Yet many don’t wish to change their trajectory. Perhaps they love the fall and all the misery and self-pity that goes with it. An awesome message dear sir. Loved it!

Wise advice
Try to keep your head above water
Reaching for the stars as you are falling could be too much and tip you over
But yes once you are stable why not reach for the stars
