If you fall, you have wings…

I come to, realizing I’m standing atop a tall tower. It isn’t solid, but instead made of wooden girders that allow me to peer down to the ground, many feet below. I try to walk forward but halt as a strong fear arises inside me. I take a deep breath and look over the edge, then wished I hadn’t. I have no idea why I am up there or how to get down safely. The fear is paralyzing.
