I’ve always felt stuck on the ground
And loved sky
My arms wish to be wings
My heart begs me to fly

To escape the day’s mess
The bundles off stress
To for once be lightfooted
And out of duress

So I wait for the night
When my dreams take their flight
And my long stretched out arms
Form into a kite

Then I fly way up high
Miles above ground
Where there’s nothing to hear
Just a rustling sound

And I dash and I speed
Through the air, I am freed
I have no concern, and no want,
And no need

Up here, it’s just me
And it feels meant to be
So come join me, my friend
And we’ll finally be free
