I stood there, I looked past the cliff and out onto the sea.


With the sea breeze blowing my hair and the salt filling my lungs, I was free. I would stand out there and lean over the edge to just feel the freedom. How I longed to fly like the birds around me. They didn't fly away from me and didn't care if I was different. I looked back to see the small house sitting there. I could here my drunk father yelling at my mom. I flinched as I heard a loud crash and I knew that he had just hit her. I couldn't bear it anymore. I looked to the ocean, then back at the house. I was caught between the two. Nobody would care if I was gone, all of my 'friends' pretended to care. But I knew better. They acted as if I didn't hear them whispering about me. I sighed deeply, and without another thought, I jumped. But you see, I didn't fall. I flew. My wings extended fully and my heart had never felt so free. The birds welcomed me, for I was one of them now.
I flew away from all my troubles and into the sunset.
