Away she flew.

 

She strode

 

Past the onlookers

 

The staring eyes

 

The pointed fingers.

 

 

 

 

 

She strode

 

On the path less strewn

 

On the road less traversed

 

On the course which was harder.

 

 

 

 

 

She climbed the ledge

 

Shushed all the whispers

 

Spread her arms

 

And leapt.

 

 

 

Earlier, she strode.

 

Now, she flew.

If only I could fly away!

I sat by the window,

Looking out at the sky,

The forlorn bird flying across

The expanse of blue

Touching the chords of my heart.

The small, brown wonder circled around,

And perched atop the neighboring window.

As it shushed and looked around,

How I longed to fly away,

To soar higher than ever

But day upon day,

The burden increased,

Bogging me down forever.

Another sparrow came and sat near,

The two chirping away,

I glanced at my empty beside,

While the pair made its’ way.

Alas! For me there was no escape,

The chains never seemed to unbind,

And so I sat there looking at the blue expanse,

Forlorn, more than ever.

Trying to locate the silver lining,

More hopeful than ever.
