Deep Thoughts: Down

going down the stairs in the dark i can't see any of the steps. my mind takes for granted they'll land under my feet in the same locations they always have.

going up the stairs i can see. the risers. the treads. and i know if i put my foot down there will be carpet and wood beneath it.

but down isn't the same. my body blocks the light cast from tv's and monitors. and my eyes can't see anything in the black trench that looms ahead.

but still i go down. without any fear. pace by pace my toes find their spot to land without any help from vision. because they don't care. down is the destination. no matter how we get there.
