To Fly Away


I can't seem to breakaway
I cannot leave this place
I hopefully wait for the day
For my wings to be unchained

I wait through day and night
To spread my wings, opened wide
To feel the wind as I take flight
To fly through the endless sky

Up in the air, flying free
My wings, soaring high
The gentle breeze upon me
Lifting and healing my spirit

But now, I look up at the sky
As reality has bound me
To this place, I can't say good-bye
Until my wings are unchained

    I like your poem. It contains elements of mythology and makes me think of a chained unicorn or perhaps a winged being that is bound to the rocks in the same way that Prometheus is said to have been bound as punishment for stealing fire from the gods out of pity for mankind. (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
