I Want to Fly

Posted: January 29, 2013 by alisonadkins in AllisonA2

I want to fly, but instead I run.
I see myself through the eyes of others,
quiet, shy, without a voice.
Knowing that thats not me at all.
It’s like when I try to talk,
something stops me,
something traps my voice inside.
It begs to come out,
to be heard.
I’m not quiet, I do have a voice
and one day, it will break through.
I will fly.

    These lines have a lot of meaning in the poem.
