I Want To Fly Away

I Want To Fly Away

As I linger in the shadow of an old oak tree I see a bird pass by.

I wonder where it is going.

I wish that I could fly.

"Volare..."

Far away from the pain, I feel.

Far from friends...
Far from family...
Far from you!

I wish that all the noise you make would just halt.

Like a car slamming on the brakes to avoid a crash.

The screeching would just abruptly end in dead silence.

Only for your finger to be flipped.

Your words still cumming through strongly, in silence.

I wish, I was that bird that has no boundaries, no limits, it's free.

Free to fly away.

"Volare..."

I want to fly away too.

A wow for that Jason. I always wanted to do that, I wish I was able to fly and escape things that I wanted, but I can only do that in words, and I'm thankful of my imagination, because it lets me free even it's not true. I appreciate your poem. I love it Jason ❤

We are very busy in our routine life and so, sometimes we want free time for our personal life.

I also need relaxation from my day to day life. But sometimes it's not possible to go outside.

I also like this sentence - " I wish, I was that bird that has no

boundaries, no limits, it's free."

Nice poem Jason!

Well done friend. I do it all the time. A lot of effort for 20+ years of work. Good poem. Thanks.

Jason, we all wish we could be free sometimes...from many different things, maybe other people..and just fly like a bird. I like this poem too.

This is an interesting poem, Jason. The narrator is addressing the third-person in the poem. But is this person someone in his present life, or someone who continues to haunt him from his past or is it society's expectations that he is running away from? I really like this poem and the questions that it raises in the reader. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.
