Greenish-blue skies lit with
firey red balloons. To be free?
Maybe, or maybe not. She jumps-
but her feet will never rise over
her tall, green shackles.
Does she wish to fly, to be free?
Could you fly through heavens
and over oceans and in canyons, without
looking back to see if you've made a trail?
So does she fly with red balloons? Perhaps,
but would you fly, too? Or would icy fear
hold your ankles to the dirt, rooted like
the grass, who once dreamt of flying too?
To fly-to be free-on red balloons.
It would, perhaps, be nice. But for now
she is content with jumping into dreams,
holding on to red balloons.

- Description: this was a class assignment from my american lit class. we had to write a poem based off of a picture of our choosing. i picked one of my favorite pictures 'Run Free' by the lovely Lara Jade. interpret as you wish, but i was aiming for the aspect of not being able to accomplish what you wish for, but settling for something just as good until that day.
