Chapter 82 of the book 2019 part 4
"I Want To Fly" by Barb Hensongispsaca
I am afraid of heights, I know
but I'd sure love to see
the world that's seen from far above
what beauty that would be.

The way the shadows darken some
while other colors blast.
A sight that's seen by very few
but would forever last.

The colors of the different trees,
the blue of ocean's hue.
The snow capped mountains with their white,
all seen, but by a few.

The tilled land laid in different squares
the trees as boundaries used,
the barren spaces burnt and brown,
by carelessness abused.

I'd love to reach and touch a cloud -
it floats serenely by,
and feel the wind upon my face
while drifting through the sky.

I'd love to try to sail the world
and see the sights unseen,
but fear of heights will hold me back
on terra firma green.

I know that I won't soar above
'cause I know where I'll be ...
I'll huddle in the corner spot
'cause I'm afraid to see.

The book continues with Wolves in Sheeps Clothing. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
