I am afraid to fly because I’ve crashed so many times,
Now I feel suffocated like I’m stuck way down in the mines.
I have fallen into a deep and inescapable dark pit,
I shall surly go mad never moving, still, here I sit.
Grounded from fear and experience I still long for the sky,
Soaring up high away from it all as life passes by.
Can I be brave and return to the air?
I’m not sure I can, even on a dare…
I am lost and alone tethered like this,
“It’s okay” they say, all I want to do is hiss.
I am tired of feeling stupid and sick of being low,
I just want to fly, oh someone please make it so!
