"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you."

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."


Everything I want in the palm of my hand
But I feel trapped inside

A loving family of equal trust
Firm in belief and who they are

But I want to fly free
And soar above the clouds

Yet I am confined to these tight spaces
That I hate and fight and try to escape

And at the end of the day
When it is all too much

The thinking, considering,
Lying, the pressure

I just want to up
And fly away


The author's comments:
Have any of you ever felt that over- bearing pressure that just makes you want to leave? Flying seems like a great escape; where you can just drift around on the air currents...

Wow, this is beautiful.  I really love how you convey the pressure of family life in this poem.  The rhythm is good and I can't spot any spelling/grammar errors.  Excellent work!
