She was just four years old
kicking her feet
harder and harder,
as the swingset creaked
and cracked
She finally reached the peak,
jumped off,
and said,
"Mama, I'm gonna fly."
and so she did;
three feet into the air,
sticking the landing
like a gymnast

And I wonder everyday
if those were the same words
she muttered
before jumping off that bridge,
unable to remember,
you only fly for a little while.
Suicide is not the answer, you only fly for a little while. And unlike the swing set, you won't be sticking the landing. I'm here for any and all of you. :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-11-17
You only fly for a little while by Tangled-Tales is poignant and succinct, clearly expressing its message without ever stating it. ( Featured by SingingFlames )

I'm trying to remember that, but just a moment of flying seems better than a life on the ground sometimes. Anyway, wonderful poem - short and touching. :) It makes me think of the song lyrics "I've been having this dream that we can fly, So maybe if we never wake up, we can see the sky."
