One last hope

Oh, how I long to fly!                Way up above the clouds with the flying horses! I see them everyday and they jeer as they soar by and I call out to them.                               "Take me with you!                                                 Teach me what you know!                                                                           Let me fly with you!"   But they don't hear my desperate pleas.                         I race across the ground, fast as my legs will take me,                                                                                   but I am no match for their speed.       Heart racing, lungs burning, legs aching, I try harder.                                     I see the edge ahead, but I am going too fast to stop.            I keep running, racing toward it.                                                        I close my eyes,                                                                                         hold my breath...                                                                                                                        and leap.                                                                                    I am flying!                   My mane whips around me, the wind stinging my eyes.       I continue my daring dive towards the ground, knowing that I can pull out of it in time. They are looking at me, the flying horses, amazement in their eyes.                                                                 I have done it!                The ground keeps coming faster, and I open my wings...                                                    but they aren't there.                                                                                  They were never there.   Again I look at them as they glide along.                                                     Seeing the sorrow in their eyes.
