    I have the most beautiful wings
    They are as colorful as the most beautiful rainbow that has ever touched the ground
    My wings span the virtual surface of the earth itself
    If I were to take flight my wing span would eclipse the sun
    And shade the earth
    I have stepped to the mountains edge and viewed the world that would be mine
    But unless you blow the wind of your confidence and approval
    Underneath the wings that are mine/not yours
    I shall never step off the mountains peak
    spread my wings and fly amongst the birds of greatness

    you can be the wind beneath my wings
    or
    the cage that confines my spirit and skews my view of the heavens that once held a place for me
    BUT
    unless you believe that I should
    chance this mountains peak and soar amongst the kings of flight
    I will never jump until I loose the chains that Bind
    the chains that bind my heart to YOU
    only then can I
    take flight in spite of you and your cage of ill confidence

    thank you for the read
    It was late and I had been drinking beer and reading poetry and through the misty haze of sleep depravation and a really good buzz I had a clear and lucid thought that helped to understand my needs and my will to fly or not to fly.
