To be bound by thoughts, emotions and expectations.
To roll up my wings in fear, and walk where I should fly.
For so long I have waited,
Watching the wind and the rain.
But no more will I wait to unfurl my wings.
I break the fetters so I can take to the heights.
I was made to rule the skies but I had bound myself to the earth.
I fear I may be slow to learn but I know I must learn, so I can soar again.
So long imprisoned I have forgotten the feeling of freedom.
Today I must take to flight.
I must leave my burdens below,
So I can fly unhindered heavenwards.
