"Secretly we're all a little more absurd than we make ourselves out to be"-- J.K. Rowling.

It seems to strange
To gaze upon a sea of light
Like the stars above
Have fallen from the night.

It seems so strange
To hear nothing at all
To stand up so high
Without fearing a fall

It seems so strange
To feel invincible
When normally
I feel so small

It seems so strange
To feel so free
When sometimes
I feel nothing at all

But against all odds
We are here
We have made it this far
And all our waiting, all our trials
Have faded to nothing more than

How strange it seems
To feel like a bird
With wings unfurled
So this,
This is what it feels like
To stand on top of the world

The more control you have over yourself, the less control others have over you.

Hello. I like the title, the picture, and the dedication to this person you call Allie. I liked the concept. I liked the rhyming in the beginning and the way it stops near the end. The repetition is wonderful. I liked this a lot. Great job!
