Leap of Faith


Standing at the edge of the abyss,

Not knowing whether or not

To take that final leap.


It is impossible to see

If this would be a Leap of Faith,

Which would make Kierkegaard proud.


Or would it turn out to be

A swan dive into a hole

Any boob could perform.


Suddenly, it comes to me,

Like a vision from on high,

The form of the Buddha beckons.


Therefore, my soul filled with strength,

I take my leap of faith,

Only to discover at the very bottom:


There is nothing there

Except the broken bones of all

My brethren half-wits.
