My little brother wouldn't go off the diving board at the pool tonight, so this is sort of inspired by him.

She bites her lip,
Smooths down her swimsuit,
Edges to the end,
Peers down,
Inches back,
Looks over her shoulder,
Wondering,
Worrying,
Turns and starts to walk back,
Then stops,
Too late to reconsider,
Runs, jumps,
SPLASH!!!
