I Wish To Fly….Despite The Pain

Posted: June 12, 2019

I wish to fly, in my heart and my soul, I wish to fly.

Twisting and turning I tug on the chains on my hands,

I pull and tear at the weight of several shackles,

Each has a name, each has a voice,

I hear them scream “Age”, “Religion”,”Custom”, “Creed”,

 “This”, “That” , “More of this” and “More of that”

Somewhere below squirms the weak bonds of “Love”

My heart cries, While I fight the pain,  and all its weight.

In all of this, where am I? where can I find “Me”?

I search, day in and day out, Cuz someday

I wish to fly, in my heart and my soul, i wish to fly.
