There comes a time when you have to stop thinking of yourself as the main character in your own story, but as the suppporting character in someone else's story.


There go the houses
There go the trees
The skyline is fading below

Farewell to the meadows
the snowpiles and sidewalks
and everything else that I know

I fear for the moment
I fear for my heart
Can it stand all these layers
that are crumbling apart?
I bury my head in my hands
and I cry
but there, through my fingers:
an expanding sky

I seize up my courage
and finally say
"The world is not falling;
I'm flying away."
