Up! Up! and away!
If you can spread your wings high, then you can fly! - Me


I spread my wings and try to fly.

I spread my wings and try to take off in the wind.

I try a lift off but I fall right to the ground

again.

I try to fly. . .

But. . .

my wings are clipped

I’m falling. . .

circling and falling. . .

I could almost touch the sky!

But I can’t

I tell myself, never give up.

I tell myself to always get up

again.

I try to spread my wings!

there clipped and once again

I’m falling.

Will ever quit falling?

I stand up and face the wind. . .

again. . .

never going to quit.

going to keep at it. . .

I spread my wings

I’m flying. . .

Oh my gosh!

I’m flying! I’m actually flying!

Wind in my hair, birds everywhere!

And I smile to the sun set and fly. . .

fly. . . away. . .

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." - Stephen King

I love books, and I love technology, but I don't want to see the latter overwhelm the former. I just think books are meant to be pages you turn, not screens you scroll through.

This poem was really good; I liked the theme a lot! Thanks for commenting on my story, by the way; keep up the good work!
