"It's not about who we are, but who we choose to be."


Up into the air.
My feet
Wave goodbye to
the green blades of grass.

Into the friendly sky.
“Hello, cloud”,
I say.
Blue sky, yellow sun, white clouds.

Tweet, tweet.
Chirp, chirp.
A bird here and
a bird there.

Let me join you!
I can fly.
Weightless.
Suspended in the air.

Wind on my skin.
Cool, gentle, comforting.
A blanket of oxygen
moving around me.

Look down!
People are ants
And
Buildings are anthills.

Someday
I must go back down.
Down to my home.
Down to my anthill.

But not today.
Today
I stay in the sky,
Freely flying.
