Flying

My nerves are frayed, my patience strained
Adrenaline is pumping through my veins
I’m standing on the edge of a cliff
Looking down and feeling sick
I edge my way forward
Cautiously at first
Stones begin to tumble down
As my toes clear, I’m now ready
There’s the possibility that I may be wrong
That I may fall
But this is my once in a life time chance,
To prove my parents wrong
When I told them I could fly,
They’d just roll their eyes
Now I’m on the edge
-One last breath
I gather my courage
-Swallow my fear
And I launch myself off the ledge
Into the unknown

For a moment, I’m confused
Struggling to breathe, as the wind whips my hair
And steals my air
Then with a prayer I feel myself jerk to a halt
Suddenly, I’m flying
With a sense of satisfaction,
I feel the feathery wings on my back
And I soar towards the sky
A wide smile takes over my face
And I fly, relieved that I’m right
Flying, I knew the whole time, deep inside
Flying, proving them wrong
Leaving that restraining ledge far behind
