The only image i can conjure is of a small bird in unwavering headwinds.
I have this thought a lot. So much that i wonder why this creature keeps on pushing on against this wall
What if she finally relaxed to let the gusts have their way?
Would it be so bad to know weightless, carelessness this time.
Let’s see where we land
Save your strength, you'd fare no better with the flock.
Even though it seems to you this has always been a trip, you have taken on your own.
I know. Focused winds make a worthy foe.
Are we supposed to be so at the mercy, metaphorically of heavy winds and heavy rains?
I wish shed say no.

    General CommentI believe he does not want to take on the responsabilities of growing up: getting a shitty job that is respected, getting married when it is the right time, having children at the right time, the stess of being seen as achieving.

    bird=him. wind=stressing to achieve success in the eyes of his peers and critics. Flock=The majority of people that do live life working their hardest, breaking bones, just to do the respected thing at the respected time. letting the winds have their way=let those things happen when they happen. lets not be worried by time and respect. You shouldn't have to fight a pace to achieve hapiness and fulfilment.

    i wish she'd say no. = his girlfriend most likely (,but could be anyone). Just someone that wants that lifestyle. Maybe a girlfriend that wants to get married just because of their accumilated time together as a couple, or even a baby.

    Ebb and flow means to waver back and forth from good state to bad state of something. Therefore, he is most likely saying that there will always be good and bad moments in life. No matter how hard you try to make it all good moments.
