    She Chose to Walk Alone

    She chose to walk alone
    Though others wondered why
    Refused to look before her
    Kept eyes cast up towards the sky
    She didn’t have companions,
    Felt no need for earthly things
    She only wanted freedom from
    What she felt were puppet strings

    She longed to be a bird
    That she might fly away
    She pitied every blade of grass
    For planted they would stay
    She longed to be a flame
    That brightly danced alone
    Felt jealous of the steam that
    Made the air is only home.

    Some say she wished too hard
    Some say she wished too long
    But we awoke one autumn day
    To find that she was gone.

    The trees they say stood witness
    The sky refused to tell
    But someone who had seen it
    Said the story played out well
    She spread her arms out wide
    Breathed in the break of dawn
    She just let go of all she held
    And then she was gone
