Letting Go - A personification poem about a balloon who doesn't fit in with the bunch!

Letting Go

This bunch, they never liked me

A balloon alone, left out

Too big and pink and heart-shaped

Too afraid to bob about

But one day at the fairground

Feeling overblown and fat

I saw a human pointing

At our drifting habitat

So, wobbling with excitement

Bullies barged me out of sight

“Pick me!” they helium-squeaked

As they dreamed of taking flight

But then I feel a tugging

I descend and see a grin

A boy named Javi laughs

at his reflection in my skin

“Pathetic, useless gasbag!”

Hissed the fading, fuming gang

“I'm going to let you go now,”

the boy looked up and sang

His tiny fingers opened

And I watched him disappear

And I never want to come down

For I feel so free up here
