Longing for freedom,
We fly always
Too close to the sun,
Poor things
That we are.

Yet courageous.

For although we forever mistake
Our glittering fancies
For the gleam of freedom,
We carry on.

Often disappointed
To find we are still tethered
To our dreams.

Slowly learning
We can only lose ourselves
In love.

  1. I’m glad you like the poem. It was kind of you to let me know. It was also kind of you to
    invite me to submit to The Chamber magazine. I was very impressed with it, covering so much
    of human experience but, I think my poems would leave your readers deeply dissatisfied.
    Thank you. anyway.
