Disclaimer: I do not own the Wood Between the Worlds (the place. Or anything Narnian, for that matter. Except a poster, and a shirt with Aslan on it, etc.)

The Wood Between the Worlds

Here I stand, the Wood Between the Worlds,

A thousand pools glisten at my feet,

Each promising adventure and peril, joy and fear.

The swirling waters so clear, but so deep.

I cannot see the bottom.

What lurks among the coral and the stones?

A whale? A shark? A maelstrom?

Will it bring me peace, or swallow me whole?

I look behind, and only dry sand remains

In the pool where my old life lay.

I stand here, in the wood between the worlds.

I lift my foot…

And leap.
