I bowed before the rain started
To cleanse and feel my wings again
The boss must have seen me hesitate
So chose to give me this instead
Now that I take position
It occurs to me somewhat
That this is where I’m supposed to be
To feel alive again
Wash my soul while you are there, I say beneath my breath
Wipe out the cobwebs, fleas and ticks,
From old and tired feathers
Then put back my own protection
Causing all to flow
Giving chances to my heart to heal within the coating
I am not praying anymore
My voice has not been heard before
Why would that change with the weather?
I just want to feel my wings again
Freedom from conformity and evil under others breath.
Free Write Friday hosted by Kellie Elmore (thanks Kellie)
It truly does present a challenge because of the instructions to free write and not edit, not even a spelling or punctuation error. It’s a great way to find your own way and test the courage in your soul. This one had to wait a day to get posted. I was very unsure of its meaning until this morning. Amazing what a new day can bring!!
