I fly

This is a poem that I had written about 4 years ago. 
At the time it seemed kind of without meaning until 
I reread and decided to make a few changes and publish 
it.  It was actually more in depth than I had thought 
and I could see what was being formulated in my head at 
the time.  It did have meaning.  
 
When I started writing poetry, I had a belief that poems had
to rhyme.  Poetry does not need to rhyme,however, while reading
this again it kind of flows on the tongue and I might try to
use a little meter in my future poetry.
 
 
 
 
I fly in the Sky
 
 
 
 
 
 
I fly in the sky
after the barrier is gone.
Clouds do float lazily
as I sing my song.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Blue horizons speak
to me in a realistic sense
and create a vastness
as the wind laments.
 
 
 
 
 
 
You may take what you want
but I will ask you to give
me a life course
by which I can live.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Moments pass all the time
under the wings of my worry.
I take in a view and sense
without hurt there is no hurry.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sight is grounded
as I set my feet.
The earth tempers the sky
as I take my seat.

Very powerful and this has great flow right from the first stanza to the last. I particulary like:

Blue horizons speak

to me in a realistic sense

and create a vastnessas

the wind laments

Keep it up! :)
