Grow Wings Poem by Ashley Ormon

Grow Wings

Rating: 4.9

I wish I was a bird so I could just fly away,
And escape all the harmful things from the light of day,
To be free from all misfortune, the heartaches, and the pain,
And to escape all things in life that are inhumane.
Like the bird that flys high in order to survive,
I wish I too, could grow wings and among the clouds could I thrive.
A bird has its freedom from the day it is born,
But no, not I, I was birthed into a place filled with thickened thorns.
So as I struggle to break free from broken hearts, cruelness, and pain,
I'll watch the bird that flies by, wishing that I too, grow wings.

a wonderful poem Ashley may I suggest that you meant to use the word 'inhumane' instead of humane? sorry, it's the 'grammar fool' inside me anyway, thanks, keep up the good work, and let me know when another one is posted

Grow wings and fly, and fly so high that the world then says that there lives the Muse. CP

Although I understand the sentiment of your words, I think you must see that even birds have pain, and find obstacles they must overcome, Your words are clearly descriptive and well chosen, I feel the flow was a bit rough as I read through but I enjoyed your poem very much. thank you for sharing. and keep writing.
