About the Poem
This is a poem describing a dream of absolute freedom, a world where one can be truly free. Depending on how deep you read, though, you may just hear the plea of a trapped soul.
|by James R. Belleforte|
|What if we could fly away?
Swim among the stars,
Feel the warmth of other suns-
Suns so near and yet so far.
What if we could touch the sky?
Speak the language of the trees?
Hear the branches whisper words
As they flutter in the breeze.
What if we could fight a storm?
Bellow back its angry cry,
Smite the mighty lightening bolts -
Strike them from the sky?
What if we could be the forest?
Harmony the robin's song?
Keep in all the good and right?
Banish everything evil and wrong?
What if we could fly away?
Embrace the starry sky?
Swim in waters of other seas?
Oh, what if we could fly?
