When I was younger I knew I could fly

I hovered over mountains

Slept on clouds

Befriended the atmosphere

I remember flying for so long that I couldn’t remember how it felt to walk

So, I landed

My feet hit the ground and I took my first step

I walked for years and the dirt collected under my feet and nails

The dirt clung to me.

Weighed me down

When I tried to lift myself into the air again… I couldn’t

I grew older and soon forgot about flying

I was beginning to think it had all been a dream

Just a child’s vivid imagination

At a point, I could no longer walk

There was too much dirt on my worn feet

My heart slept

My soul was released

I could fly once again
