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!
