I remember when I was younger, how I loved to fly kites. To me, they symbolized freedom, the ability to soar and unlimited potential. Then I reached what I call 'my alchemist' years I realized that the kite was not a symbol of freedom but one of control...
As a kite, I would be free to fly but only as far as someone would allow me to go.
As a kite, Some one would tell me how high to fly.
As a kite, I would be used for a few short months and then be put away.
As a kite, I would catch the wind but be controlled by someone else's fear of losing control.
I ascend not as air. I am a kite but one given the power to manipulate my own strings, soar as I see fit and bring forth ideas that travel like the wind.
Those that dream of me, know that to do so, means prosperity. Those who dream of losing control of the string that holds me realizes that they have lost control of things that matter only to them.
As a kite, I am used to celebrate the wind, spring and birth......
FREEDOM LIES WITHIN...Let go of the string
