Escape Route

I stood far from the place I feared
memories rushed as my eyes closed
This is it, no turning back
I took a deep breath and slipped
the gushing wind washed away my fears
I stretched my wings and flapped it hard
pushing the air below me, I soared
the higher I went, the lighter I felt
as world diminished under me
the warmth of sun touching my heart
I slowly faded into the blue sky
