Take-off time!

To start something new
Is like leaping off a cliff
To get a feel for your wings.

The air-rush through your feathers
And the sudden thermal uplift;
The view shudders through me
On such a day.

It often takes a few quiet thoughts
And a few steps in a certain direction
To gain momentum
And then all of the voices that say, you can’t
Get hushed and shoved one by one
Until you can only hear, you can,
Whoever said no in the first place?
It’s only one big yes from up here!

I’m free fall flying now
Catch the surge of a cloud
In a rainbow sunshine sky
And that’s me, it’s take-off time!
