I’m Free

I was full of hope walking the high tightrope until I lost my balance and fell. No one heard me yell out for help not even you.

I found myself hopeless and alone. I kept asking the shadow cast on the wall to pull me up. Finally I put my arm back down. It was numb just like my broken legs.

Would I just rot and my dust be taken away by the wind? Who would know I ever existed?

You? You the one that abandoned me after telling me I could fly high?

You? You the one that said you would care for me if I fell?

You? You the one that clipped my wings when I wasn’t aware?

I trusted you but I was foolish to do so.

But my fate will not be sealed by your jealousy and hatred of me.

I will muster all my inner strength and crawl on my numb broken limbs. I shall escape this mental cage you put me in. I will fly again too except this time you won’t be able to catch me for I will be free.

The Seagull Lesson

It’s time to spread my wings and fly

For on this barren land I’ll surely die

I’m going to really soar

Must search other lands for more

My end goal is to live and thrive

Even if I must scavenge to survive

Namaste
