Is this how it all ends?
I stand up on the ledge
Flirting with the idea
Of going over the edge

Something is tugging me 
"Go back inside"

But I will not listen
Not this time 

No longer will I cower in my closet and hide

My soul of a rat
Will no longer fear the cat

You wanted me
"So here I am!"

I will never be that sad dumb lamb
Never again 

"Never again"
I shout this out loud 
Shouting out to the world 
Or at least all the people in the crowd

The look up at me
Frightened beyond belief

I close my eyes...

Whisper a final goodbye...

Then I leap

And I realize

I can fly
