Why fall?

Fall, in the dictionary, is defined as, to drop or come down freely under the influence of gravity. If you fall, it is not because you wanted to fall, but because something acted on you to fall. It is rather unintentional and uncontrollable. You can resist it for a time, but eventually you will fall. One can only jump as high as gravity allows. Gravity is the reason we fall. Without it, there would simply be no falling.
There is, however, another force that causes one to fall. Fall, in the sense that it’s often unintentional and uncontrollable. A type of falling where the injuries that you get from it, should your fall be disastrous, are not manifested physically, but is so severe that it sometimes causes deep wounds that take too long to heal, broken bones that don’t mend completely, and scars that don’t go away. This force has baffled the minds of great scientists, and cannot be measured or defined in linear quantities. A force that knows no bounds; a force that defies all logic and reason; a force called love.
