I Would Be Flying Right Now
I would be flying right now, this second, way up in the sky,
If I believed that I could.
Which I always believed as a small child.
I flew around in my bedroom nightly,
after brushing my hair one hundred strokes.
Because they forgot to tell me I could not fly.
My twin sister thought it was hilarious.
She kept asking me how I could do that.
I knew I could and so I did.
It is that easy.
Weirdly enough, the experts kept
telling me it could not be done, that it was
a lie. That I was not able to fly.
I believed them, and so the flying stopped.
I am sad about this sometimes.
Only my twin and I know I can do it.
It is a matter of keeping myself
away from the others....
