A Time to Rest

“I’m free!” She screamed, and she held her hands out towards the sky.
It’s what she reached for, far above her head.
For peace and happiness; away from all the hurt and pain she felt.
Away so that no one could touch her, they had no reason to.
When she stepped into this dream everyone would know her, know how great she is.
She would have everything she ever wanted. She would be free. So she flew.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I don't know if you wanted anyone to go deep into thought about this but i really loved how nothing in the world could hold her down or back from what she wanted because it was her who flew. Not her body, her. So good Great Job:)
