100 Words – Flight

[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]

As a child, I wished to be a bird. As a bird, I could fly free high in the sky. I wouldn’t have to worry about tests, or exams, or anything else.

But, then I knew I was still human, and I could only watch the birds flying high in the sky. I wished, I wished so hard to follow them.

But humans were not supposed to fly, not free as a bird. They stayed on the ground, only to watch from below.

Forever trapped.
