A Morning Flight

Leaping off the mountain

into the ramshackle atmosphere

joining my colleague

without fear

Floating along

enjoying the view

what happened next

was something new

Seeing some birds

joining the pack

bragging that I was one of them

tapping one on the back

The bird was startled

losing some altitude

took some minutes to recover

then came back with an attitude

Attacking me

calling all his friends

I quickly began

to try to make amends

Poetic justice in the moment

as the wind died down

I began to drop

having a nervous breakdown

Falling faster

the wind picked up again

suddenly rising to safety

relief and a grin

Sliding onto the ground

watching the birds disappear

never again bragging

hindsight is clear

At Wit’s End

Desperation turned into sadness

as the young man sat on the rails

with tears in his eyes

the tracks represented his trail

Reflecting on life

without any direction

wandering the rails

each car a troublesome section

At his wit’s end

he could no longer hold the peace

speaking his mind

yelling a speech

Finally in tears

an awakening came

make a change

or everything would remain the same

Getting up

with a new attitude

he faced the world

with a sense of gratitude
