Higher and Higher

“Up” sings the bird, and soars higher and higher

Her eyes fixed ahead, her wings grow not tired.

“Look!” caws the flock, as they see her go by

taking to the air to follow her high.

“Free” she hums softly, as she climbs over the clouds

Leaving behind the chains of the crowds.

“Wait!” shouts the flock, as they try to keep pace

Lacking her beauty, her freedom, her grace.

“No” she whispers, with courage and pride

And disappears into the sun, only herself by her side.
