How I wish to be a feather

So calm and relaxed

How I wish to fly and float…

So quietly, like a boat.

If only I was a feather

One that would never be found

So I can lay awake

Never stirring with a sound.

To never hear pain and terror

To feel feelings that shouldn't exist

And just be free…

To just be there… for me.

What a feather could do

Like nothing else mattered in the world.

Just the wind to travel along,

Oh, how wondrous, how calm.

To be a feather,

Drifting along the breeze.

To be a feather,

And be forever at ease.
