Looking up I see a bird,

Smoothly swimming through the clouds.

Outstretched are its wings

Its destination unknown to me.


I can’t relate to that bird.


My wings have been stretched to their limits,

Scraped and ripped at the sides.

My leg tied to a rock, I’m unable to move an inch

I wish to escape

To join the carefree life.


To become a bird.


Shifting my backpack,

My heavy burden,


I look to that bird for strength

And continue to my classes.
