In Flight

Read by Carrie Fountain

My dreams soar above the clouds

Bubbles of hope

And happiness

Flying with the birds

Close to the sun.

Although I may not fly,

My dreams can.

And I think about them

Being where I cannot be

As I sit at a desk,

In a chair,

Anchored to the ground.

But soon I will be up there with my dreams

In flight,

Wheeling through the air

Next to my fantasies.
