A Pendulum Poem inspired by a conversation with my youngest.

Get Away

If only life were like a flight,
I'd choose to travel light.
I'd check my bags,
No tags,
Then fly,
Let time go by.
Alas, I understand
There'd come a time I'd have to land.



A pendulum poem is eight lines with a syllable count of 86422468. The rhyme scheme is aabbccdd.
