A Penguin's Dream

To feel the wind under my wings,
That is what I dream of,
If I had all worldly things,
It wouldn't matter if I didn't do what I love,
To be like a feather in the sky,
Twirling freely in the air,
If I should spread my wings and fly,
I would take great care,
All I want is them to see,
Who I was always meant to be.

The author's comments:
I wrote this to symbolize me when I first entered high school and I was trying to fit in with all the other teenagers. I was trying so hard to prove to everyone who I could be when in the end I just needed to prove to myself who I truly was.
