Well, I wrote this one several months ago. It may have some mistakes, so I hope you readers like it and comment anything that can be wrong.
And yes, feel free to leave any idea for a title XD

We're on the edge.
Jumpin' it isn't easy.
But, c'mon, let me fly!

Will my life end abruptly,
crashed on misty pikes?

Or will I be able
to rise and conquer?
A smile and 'Goodbye' ?

I'm towards the edge now.
If I jump there won't be the same.
If I don't there will always be the same.

Jump = fly.
Jump = change.
Change = fly.

It's something about the style. It works. There's power in simpler speech (which I obviously can't do myself )
I'm wondering if "it" is necessary since it is currently grammatically incorrect

Word choice on "crashed." Doesn't feel right.
"Misty pikes" sounds pretty weird too.

Also, I lol'd since Misty is in your avatar.

What is the speaker going to "conquer"? Ends too abruptly.
If you read it too quickly it reads "and conquer a smile," which makes no sense.

I have problems with the fragmented third line. "Smile and say 'Goodbye'"?

Quote:

What happened to "we" in the first line?

Is the use of "there" as a noun intentional?
Frankly, the last two lines flow terribly and they are hard to read.

Overall, it's simple, but somewhat effective. I'd like to see more relation between the various lines - I feel as though the first stanza could be dropped and the poem would stay the same. The tone changes right after the third line and not in a good way. Try to follow through to the end or gradually change it.

Another problem I see is that there really is no doubt to the choice which apparently "isn't easy." Convey that keeping change is often easier than changing or convey some other form of doubt.

I see, I see... The second verse is quite confusing, but it happens because I wrote it originally in Spanish, and when I translated.. :/

About the third verse, I know it can be seen as messy and senseless, but I like that way, it's all just about perspective, I think...

There's no 'conquer', this is not Age of Empires XD But is a conquer of life... "Will I be able to conquer my goals? my objectives?" That's what I'm talking about.
And 'A smile and goodbye' keeps the relation with that. I tried to say that if I go in the quest of my goals, I will just need to say 'goodbye' and, with a smile, go and face life.
I understand the whole concept, but also understand that I'm the writter so its obvious for me to understand it XD

Anyway, thanks for the comments, I'll take them in consideration!
