Wings of Freedom

Illustration drawn by Brittany Melosh.

by Keith Loh, staff reporter


Learning and remembering, there is a difference between the two.

You’re so much more than a number, if only you knew.

There’s so much to live for,

To travel and go explore.

A whole world is waiting outside of these four walls.

Do you not hear nature’s call?

Do what you want, not what you’re told,

Or else you’ll be filled with regret once you grow old.

Tests cannot measure your creativity,

All they do is keep you in captivity,

Do not clip your wings for birds are meant to fly.

Do not confine yourself for that is how one rots and dies.

So spread your wings, go on, be free.

For birds weren’t meant to be caged, wouldn’t you agree?
