perhaps a balloon

i believe that balloons are free 
even tied to strings 
they rise above me 
i'm pretty sure they want the sun 
and ignore the clouds of everyone 
i might be mistaken 
perhaps not of wit 
but if there's a race to the sky 
i want to be part of it 
perhaps a balloon 
has nothing to lose 
leaving the ground behind 
the problem it seems 
when i let go the string 
it gets to fly. . . i have to climb

    This made me smile inside. It's a very wonderful poem. Like innocent poetry from a childrens book...love nikki.

    Ahhh a dreamer. I suppose most poets are. As long as you watch it as far as you can part of you still gets to fly.
