I have dreamed of flight
for as long as I can
remember...
the days would grow cloudy
and dark
but I
I was up above
soon to put wind
to this dream of mine,
so
I was ok
for now
for tomorrow
I had my dream
it was mine, no one could
take it away.
but my feathers
have grown
weary
of waiting, and my
wings wonder
now if they have
waited ready all this
time
for nothing.
will this trepidation
get the very best of me
I wish, oh
how
I wish, for a shoulder
but I can't be
off balance
if I am to find the wind
face the wind
it will be
it must be
with lifted chin
and open eyes and not
out of anger, and not
because of hate and the
need to run and hide,
but because
I
want to
fly...

I say fly until your heart is content dear...may happiness be somewhere in the near clouds!!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Fly, but do not fly to high
For that the good perhaps is right down here
Well done such nice poem

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Fly and fly high...but be careful son, the clouds are not but tiny droplets of water and aren't much so far as to catch a human soul from falling.   But nonetheless, keep and eye to the sky and both feet on the ground and when your time comes you will soar among the clouds with the eagles.
Very nice poem.   cmg

You express your thoughts beautifully, corazon. Many of us use our imaginations to fly even when our feet are mired down in the concrete of reality.

Oh, and where do you find the wind? Stand behind Toerag after a Burrito Supreme!!

Corazon, you're soaring, indeed, upon the gentle winds of poetic flight. Loved this poem!

Another beautiful work, Corazon!

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

I swear, do you format these poems like this on purpose? That one about water before was like a waterfall. Now this one, about the undulating waves of doubt, and the final flapping of wings, mimicks the shape of the poem. Arrrgh! Stop with the hidden talents already!  

Great poem.

Me too! I want to fly! But why is it that we almost always find ourselves grounded???

Considering the fact that I sent you paragraphs of portentous pontification via email, I'll simply say well done! *G*
