Growing Wings To Fly

Image Source: Google

Broken yet alive
In this heartless world I am
Growing wings to fly

Growing wings to fly
Slowly I shall learn to soar
High above the sky

High above the sky
I shall watch the world beneath
Fighting to survive

    1. Thank you KP! This format is called Haiku. With the first line having 5 syllables, the second line 7 and the third like 5 syllables. A collection of them is called a Haiga. The one above is a collection of Haikus.

  12. The sense of freedom that your words have brought in this post is very scintillating. I could almost feel the urge to fly away, without a care.
