I want to be free.

I need to be free.

To fly far away.

Above all else.

To soar high above.

To peer down.

Through the mighty clouds.

Upon all else.

My wings are spreading.

My head held high.

Feathers to the wind.

Face to the sun.

Goodbye to all.

Goodbye to the mundane.

Goodbye to the everyday.

Goodbye to all else.

    This is lovely and I’ve done this: flown above all else (not like Icarus because my spirit needed no wings)! You could publish a book of just your poetry with the pictures that suit your words so well!

      Thanks but I’m not a poet. This is the first time that I made it rhyme. I’m just trying out different ways to write.

        Wow! Well, that says much about your natural talent. Plus, I can tell you are having fun!

      Thanks everyone. I like writing my little posts everyday. It’s more fun than writing a book.
