Poems: Birds in Flight

 

Birds in Flight

I see carefree birds

Flying toward the light

The bird and I are leaving

The bonds of earth

The darkness is forcing us down

We struggle to flyimg_3392

We spread our wings and

impel ourselves forward and upward

The light calls to us with

Promises of safety and hope

Why does the darkness attempt

To hold us back

We are tired but eager to reach

That hope filled glow

Our wings are backlit and

Our hearts rise joyfully

We are free to take our time as

We flit around the shafts of light

Though the journey is rigorous

Hope persuades our feathers on
