To Float or To Fly

23 Aug

It is a struggle to break free,
to disengage from the pleasures
of floating aimlessly on this placid
surface. Floating is easier than flying.

But was I made to float? Is that who
I am? I admire the beauty of flight,
see how she glides on the wind. How
he soars and dives on the friendly currents.

To float or to fly. Is it one or both?
My mind is so accustomed to either/or.
But I am both/and. I have wings for one
and feet designed for the other.

I am doubly blessed. To float or to fly?
