How Far?



How Far?
 
Perched at hill’s crest
Propelled by youthfulness
The cheers of classmates
And willful ignorance
My legs churned
Outrunning doubt

Feet
Forward
Faster
Finally
Flat
Face
First

How far I flew
Carried by youthfulness
Daring laughter
Gleeful ignorance
And flimsy cardboard wings
I’ll never know

But far enough

Perched at hill’s crest
Restrained by age
The scorn of conformity
And stern awareness
My legs churn
At pace with expectation

How far could I have flown
Carried by carefree wings
I’ll never know

Never far enough
