The skies, they are totally clear
But then, so is my fear
I feel a breeze
An evil tease
In my head, screams do I hear.

That hole deep in my gut
The eyes that are tightly shut
A horrible nightmare
That only I care
Others think I’m just a nut.

The silver that I am off to seek
Is only a sign I am weak
Flying in error
Feeling the terror
Counting myself among the meek.

Trying to be brave enough to fly
I’m scared and I don’t know why
What lies ahead
Are lies in my head
I just want to curl up and cry.
