Eseu castigator 11-14 ani – Premiul Juriului (Mindru Ruxandra)

The Freedom to Fly, by Ruxandra Mindru, student at National College, Piatra Neamt

I was in a room… Dark, cold, terrifying in its rigidity. Far away, a pale light lingered. I tried to run towards it, but something frozen grabbed my neck and hit my back. I fell to my knees. It was all so wrong… I never feared pain. No, I feared this cage. I feared standing behind bars, sinking into darkness while all lights went out. Hope was still there, but I couldn”t reach it!

With a scream, I ripped the chains that were holding my arms and, as I turned, the black cane let go of me. I ran to the light and finally I reached it. A window! It was open! I climbed up the frame and looked down… An abyss of glittering light glowed under my feet. I let go of all doubt and fear and I jumped… I jumped like stepping in a new world.

As I was falling, my body began transforming… Feathers grew on my arms and my fingers became claws. I was no longer falling… I was flying! I was an eagle flying over the fields and mountain tops, flying over everything that has ever tried to bring me down… I was dancing in the air! The sun resembled a golden crystal bowl, an orb of the future…

I dived to the ground. The speed was blinding. I hovered above the grass and suddenly I felt every single piece of my body grow, fur replacing feathers and dagger-sharp fangs growing from my jaws. I started running with the same feeling I had while flying… The speed, the simple force I used to run, the feeling of freedom, of broken cages, of self discovery made me so happy…

I know I”m transformed

and I no longer need a mirror to see myself in. The overwhelming feeling of power and freedom I gained gives me confidence and vision. This is my own perfection…

And that”s the only thing I will need in my next journey, simply called “Life”.
