A Brave Flight

Up and above the mystic skies
I am rising with every leap I take
With light glistening in my eyes, hope splurging
Towards a new beginning, hugging my freedom

As I near the emanating light, a thud stops me

There above the inviting skies is a barrier so rigid
It stops me midway with its stark terror
I bump, I struggle and an enclosure forms
It invites me in it, but is it the door?

Will I fly above or stay huddled in the safe zone?

    Sounds like you are on the verge of something…it’s funny these past few months I’ve been drawn to watching birds and their flight and imagining how freeing it must be to fly and swoop so carefree. Wouldn’t that be amazing if we could fly like a bird! Lovely poem.

        Skies have always attracted me… most of us wish to have wings… but we are capable for something else and that is our path of life!
