My soul is aching to fly

January 23, 2008
By Megg Lane, Del Rio, TN

My soul is aching to fly,
Fly from this torture.
It keeps telling me to try,
But I'm too afraid,
Afraid of falling.

My heart tells me to listen,
listen to my soul,
But I still can't.
Failing keeps me stuck in a rut,
Afraid of the world.

My head agrees with me,
Saying I should stay put.
My soul and heart keep pulling,
I feel like I'm getting ripped in two,
But who should I listen to?
