roots vs wings

i run deep
a depth, i dont fully comprehend
i run deep
a strength, spread firm.

i fly high
soar across the skies
i fly high
seek new adventures

i run deep
solid belief, terra firma
i run deep
home ground, safe space.

i fly high
aim higher than the last
i fly high
break all ceilings, glass and mind.

every milestone, every ceiling
my wings take me to the unseen
people places new and old
my roots burrow deep to the safe

a constant battle, tug of war
safe and new, left and right
bird in hand, sight set on more than a few

a constant battle, tug of war
the roots that ground me
wings that set me free
