Day 16 of NaPoWriMo

Swinging

Swinging,
Swinging through the sky,
Falling,
Freefalling,
Near flying,
Free from care.
Heroic and humble,
Guilty and strong,
Making your way
Through a world you never made
Struggling to honor
The memory of a loved one
Gone to the other side.
Adventure,
Thrills,
Laughing,
And chills.
Seeing danger
Before and after
And during.
Power
And responsibility.
The fantasy come true.
The reality, too.
Still, it is fun to dream
Of swinging through
The canyons of the city,
Not a care in the world
While carrying
The weight of the world
On your shoulders.
