like to glide

i only liked to glide
though at times
it was necessary to flap
and yes,
to descend
or else meet Icarus’ sweet fate

sweet it must have been
to heights no wings had before seen
flying to freedom
beyond sky’s kingdom

who said liberation was free?
you give up everything
[though nothing seems lost]

no need to flap
nowhere left to descend


Listen (and watch) through your heart ღ
