The cold, gusty wind made it harder to fly,

 

But my friend told me I had to try,

 

The wind stung my face like a thousand bees,

 

When I jumped from the bridge, I buckled my knees,

 

My stomach went lurching, and twisting and churning,

 

As I opened my eyes to see the world turning,

 

I stretched out my wings and took a deep breath,

 

Hoping this day wouldn’t end in my death,

 

I could feel my heart pounding as loud as a drum,

 

The air seemed so thin, as I swayed to and from,

 

I fell down from the sky in a tumbling motion,

 

And I screamed in the air with a loud commotion,

 

Suddenly the ground rushed up to meet me,

 

But at the last minute the wind swooshed beneath me

 

Pushing me back up into the sky,

 

I finally did it, I had learned how to fly,

 

My smile reached to the tip of my ears,

 

I had just realized I conquered my fears,

 

This is who I am meant to be,

 

Someone that could reach sky-high goals , this is ME.
