"Magic is real. You just have to know where to find it." -unknown

I wanted to reach the moon, so I jumped with ferity,

but gravity brought me down and I lost all dexerity.


I wanted to seize the stars, so I leapt with grace,

but I fell back down at a faster pace.


I wanted to float like the clouds, so I lay back my heavy head,

but the weight of my subconsious makes the clouds spread.


I wanted to fly like the birds, so I attempted to float,

but the fact that I'm human makes my wings inchoate.


So I'll remain the person I am meant to be, 

I will be the one and only real me.
