the only time i fly
is not in school doing
math and sports and handling
social drama
all these silly things that do not matter
the only time i fly
is not fighting with the people that
i love over some
silly thing that doesn’t matter
the only time i fly
is not when i’m
lonely and sad and crying
my eyes out over some silly
thing that doesn’t matter
the only time i fly
is not when i hear the
news of silly
things that do not matter
and politicians making silly
lies that
do not matter
the only time i fly
is not in airplanes
not in hot air balloons or
helicopters or jet packs
or spaceships or
jumping
thinking about silly things
that do not matter
the only time i fly
is when i write
about silly things that
matter

Exactly how I feel. The things I write about are sometimes silly and I never show them to anyone. But they always mean the world  to me. Great job! I absolutely love this. Please read,rate,and comment on my poems! Thanks!
