All that life gave me

 A blindfold

A seat on the fence

A straightjacket on the sidelines

A bet with a limb

A chance of aphakia

A race with a limp

A back on the edge of

A cliff

And yet

A kind whisper of

A word

Answering all my questions but

Allaying not my fears

A mumble

A chime that resonated with “Jump”
