Wings to Fly

I was given wings to fly,

To soar above the world,

To escape the pain of life.

I was given wings to fly,

To dance along the light of the moon,

To sleep upon a star.

I was given wings to fly.

~

I stand on the edge of this cliff,

Extend my wings to their fullest,

My eyes ascend to the sky,

To thank the moon and stars,

For always lighting my way.

I take the step over the cliff,

And trust to my wings to fly.

~

The air rushes over my wings,

Lifting me to the sky,

The worries of my days,

Are gently washed away.

I sudden pain pierces my back,

I start to fall away from the sky.

Trusting to my wings to fly,

~

As I fall, I realize,

My wings have been clipped.

No longer can I fly,

No longer am I free.

I just keep falling.

I look to the sky once more,

To see the world I loved.

~

I was given wings to fly,

To soar above the world,

To escape the pain of life.

I was given wings to fly,

But my wings have been clipped.

I was given wings to fly,

But fly, I cannot.
