One day a little chirping bird
said unto me
“Don’t you wish you could fly away
and be truly free?”
“My wings carry me away
to great distant lands
feeling the soft wind beneath them
doing as my mind commands.”
And I looked to the little bird
and a smile spread across my face
“Why yes I wish I could fly with you
to that special place.”
“The place where no one cries
and no one is in pain
the place where we can truly love
every part of ourselves again.”
and as this bird and I talked
and the sun began to set
I felt my back moving
a pair of wings I did get.
With elated smile
and cheer escaping my mouth
I leapt to fly into the air
and circled round my house.
Now me and that bird keep flying
each and every day
to distant lands and sunsets
we fly so far away.
How did those wings grow, you ask?
Upon my back that day?
Well who am I, a chirping bird
to really and truly say?
This world is filled with magic
with things not yet known
so just close your eyes and leap into the air
your wings will carry you home.
