Learning to Fly

More by this author
I feel the need to fly away,
But it seems somethings making me stay.
My wings outstretched,
And ready to fly,
But I can't break free,
I cant even try.
My heart longs to be free,
From this caged and harsh world,
But i cant get away from the emotions,
For i cannot see.
My heart wants to feel loved,
Is that so much to ask?
I want to leave, I want to fly,
I need that chance,
Just please,
Let me try.

Sometimes I feel like that too, but I feel trapped with my words. I am a very talkative person. I know that the best way to be free is loving and obeying God. If you pray sincerly, he will help you. I know that he hears every prayer. He loves you. I enjoyed your poem. Good job.

Thank you, and I agree! I am a huge believer in God, and I believe that he is the answer when it comes to times of struggle and times of joy! Thanks again for your comment:)
