Free As A Bird

I look at the birds

 And close my eyes.

Then I start to wish

I could be them.

To fly so high and feel the breeze,

Free from control,

Free from strain

Free to be me and no one else.

To feel the rush and the coolness is all I need.

Then I open my eyes and realize,

I am still here!

Then I get a sudden change.

I am me and no one else.

I am free to do whatever I chose.

And most importantly,

All I need is God, my family and friends.

I am not a bird.

I am better.

I am me.
