The wheel creaks

                                and strains


Beneath they all look so worried as they shout up that I shouldn’t be.


They don’t understand, they don’t grasp what it means for me.


Being above trapped

                                in a squeaking straining cabins?


It’s not trapped at all.


Down there, that’s the banal.


Here I’m free

                                I’m flying.


On the ground? The rules, the don’t’s, the must nots


A victim of everyone’s demands and thoughts.


I’d rather here

                                stuck but soaring.
