Favorite Quote:
"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations."

"It was books that me made feel that, perhaps, I was not completely alone."

There is a tree that has grown tall and long and on the top a bird sits on his throne.

He sits there with pride of his own great power to view the world from the top of the tower.

He leans toward the edge of the extended tree branch and jumps off to fly without a back glance.

With courage and confidence, he soars through the sky, enjoying the view from a bird's eye.

He absorbs the good of the world below and ignores the bad, which he'd rather not know.

He has felt no pain, only hope and curiosity. We are two opposites and of his power we envy.

The author's comments:
A lot of people have said that they wish they could view the world from a bird's eye. I based this poem off of that, in addition to some personal experiences of my own.
