The symbolism of the kite
Nicko wrote the chorus, but the verses were a blank sheet. I’m not sure from where the words “Like a kite, like a kite yearning for the sky…” came, but suddenly they were just there – eager to get out. I scribbled down the words and set to singing them right away. And so this song became “Like a kite”.
It’s tricky, but not impossible, to build your own kite. Takes a few tries. I loved how the building a kite symbolises growing up – learning your craft, honing your talents to become more of yourself. Because isn’t this just how it should be?
