Flight

Who will charge over the cliff,

The cliff in plain view,

Legs driving,

Arms pumping,

Full tilt,

Launching into the empty air,

With only rocks below?

 

A fool will.

 

So the world tells me.

 

A fool will leap after looking into the void.

 

Only a fool.

 

A wise man knows the path,

Finds the sure footing,

Follows the rules

Walks (or runs) on even ground,

And navigates by reason and sense.

 

A wise man does these things.

 

So the world tells me.

 

No one can fly.

 

I would love to fly

But no one flies.

We all fall.

 

So the world tells me.

 

I’m no caped superhero.

I’m no angel.

Those aren’t real.

 

So the world tells me.

 

Very well.

 

I’ll be a fool.

 

Maybe wings of faith need empty air

And a running start.
