Flight  (noun randomly generated by Word Generator)


I stood on the brink of adulthood
Ready to take flight
Or so I thought
I even had a Bible passage to inspire me
That I was taking out of context:
And you shall know the truth
And the truth shall make you free.
Free of adult supervision,
free of their rules and stipulations
free to follow my dreams…
So  I took flight
but I had the wings of Icarus
and flew too close to the sun
and quickly fell to drown in the sea.
There is no place of freedom
life has a structure and form
we must follow.
The only way to be free
is to live within that structure:
enter and follow a flight plan.
