To Be a Cloud

To be free, to be able to not care where the wind takes me.

To not have to worry about how, 

what I am is going to affect people, 
whether I impact them in a good way or a bad way. 
To not have to think about where Im going, 
what the destination will be,
Or if there is even an end to this.
To be pure, to be real, to not feel ruined, like a lost cause.
To be able to reach as far as I can to my fullest extent,
To reach over the tallest buildings,
To graze the highest mountain top. 
I want to be something.
Notice how I said something, and not someone.
For it is not another person that I wish to be,
Did you ever think of a cloud?

My teacher told me to look through a magazine and find a picture to write a poem about. I saw the cloud and instantly personofied it and this is what came off the top of my head.
