I’m prepared to fly,
My face against the wind.
The passion for the sky
Can’t be kept within.

I’m prepared to sail
Deeper, unknown waters;
The joys of quest prevail,
The journey is what matters.

To soar among the eagles,
Sail beyond the seas,
Rise above the mountains,
Float amidst the clouds.

Wings are tired but steady,
Feet firm on the ground.
Stars shine in my eyes,
And raindrops in my hair.

There is a world beyond-
Across the frontiers unseen:
The sun never does set,
Nor the moon does wane.

I’m prepared to fly
Seeking newer meadows;
The past within my grip,
The future within reach.
