Through the Links in the Fence

As a kid I always had these dreams where I could fly
I remember I use to waste my time looking at the sky
Back then I thought I was free to go wherever I wanted
I never realize there was an iron fence holding me back

The sky had seemed so small from the places I lay
I would stretch my arms out to watch it all fade away
It took me a while to notice my dreams had died out
And the world I once loved belong to someone else

The iron fence surrounding me started climbing higher
My spaces were closing in and I began to lose my desire
It seemed like even before I learned to crawl
I knew I would never have the strength to fly

Every now and then I'd think back to what I had
Searching for those times when things weren't so bad
Yet there are times where things almost made sense
As I stare at the sky through the links in the fence

    What a funny one but the massage is there at the tail end. I love it. Common, keep desiring the dream of flying perhaps you'll grow wings and just fly one day. Ha ha...Just teasing

    A good piece of writing. I don't have a favorite stanza, I'm afraid, it was all pretty much as good as each other.
