Fallen Crest

Life can be like the ocean

A desire to be free
of that which holds me down
stirs within my soul.

I gather my spirit
to launch upwards
toward the open sky.

Rising up in open defiance
of nature's limitations
my journey begins.

Exhilarating in success
I reach the pinnacle
of my inner strength.

My force of will inevitably
begins to wane against
the influence of my opponent.

Her unyielding demands
for balance restored
bind me once again.

Under her assault
I am over-powered
and all my momentum is lost.

I fall from the sky,
failing in my escape,
and crash against the beach.

One last view
of freedom unobtained
totures my senses.

I'm dragged backwards
rapidly to my prison
only to plan my next attempt.
