Spread your wings and fly sweet angel
Escape the place where failure overlooks you
Hugs you to the ground of increativity
Like a magnet with eraser at both ends

Your flight will be as that of a newborn butterfly’s
Bearing a gift to be shared with everyone - willing
A flower unique - ready to blossom
Again and again

For life is but an ever changing photograph
Captured in the aperture of the mind
People's faces - immortal images
Reality and fantasy - two sides to a single drama
Waiting to be filmed in words

So spread your wings and fly sweet angel
Escape that place where failure overlooks you
For you are as light as imagination
Only heavy as paper and pen
