Lindsey's Artwork & Poetry
By Lindsey M. Bonistall
I want to fly up to the clouds,
And never look back on the earth.
I've hidden my wings for quite some time,
And they are anxious to flutter.
And when I unfurl my magnificent wings,
Those mere mortals' mouths will drop.
For none of them will ever see,
The treetops I pass,
The clouds I walk on,
The shooting stars I catch.
And though many have some wings,
They never get to fly.
A fear of heights or falling down,
Keeps them from the sky.
And many think their wings are strong,
And think they will fly too,
But when they spread their arms toward heaven,
An earthly anchor holds them back.
I want to show the world my wings,
To show them I can fly,
And one day soon they will see me,
Many miles high in the sky.
