How can I take flight when the weight of the world 
rests upon my shoulders? 
 
I pray that a second wind give rise to an effortless glide all the while 
knowing the absurdity of my actions. 
 
But where shall I place my hope if not in a transcendent state of being?
All of the souls yearnings coalesce 
 
into this one moment, this one fleeting second where I feel as though I may break. 
Yet I know I must carry on! 
 
Even as the gravity of my plea becomes the shackles that bind my soul, 
keeping me from seeing the light. 
 
Oh what a cruel light it must be!
