Standing on the Edge

While standing on the edge of a cliff
I notice down below
What I thought was so high above
Was really quite low
So I thought I could jump
Leap off the cliff and fall
Yet when I lept off my feet
The ground got very small
I jumped straight down
But no where I found
To place my feet when I would fall
To survive the great wall
So instead of surviving
I must have failed
Because there’s no more left
Since I failed the great fall

Standing on the edge of a cliff
Looking down below
I see the water glistening as it flows
