I stare at the sky, enormous and blue,
Blue, the color of dreams, possibilities,
Possibilities, those that stud my dreams,
Dreams that give me the hope to fly,
To fly high, soar in the sky,
The sky of infinite opportunities,
Opportunities I want to run and grab,
Grab and make the most out of,
Out of my dreams and into reality,
Reality, the crushing truth of life,
Life is so small, and I need to live,
Live to the fullest and leave my mark,
‘My mark’, it sticks, and I make the jump,
The jump to soar into that never ending expanse,
The expanse waits, but I cannot reach,
Cannot reach my change of destiny,
Destiny, etched into my paralysed feet,
Feet that do not let me run…..
