Wings


What freedom

does the bird have

when they say

He has more

freedom

than humans

Maybe they are wrong

Because wings

can only take you so far

We have them not

But in

life

we seem to need

large, white wings

to fly away

and be

free

But would you have the courage

even to do that

-to fly and be free and alone

If we had no sky

and just ground

And to be free we must walk only

The bird would wish ‘for strong human legs

To walk, so that

he may be free

We do not need

wings of a bird

We all need

courage

and faith

and hope

and love

So that we may stretch the

legs

we have

And be

free

So our legs of freedom

of courage

and faith

and hope

and love

So we may

fly higher than they

Fly and be free

Free as the bird

in his sky

We shall find our sky. Yes, we will.

-Angela R. Watts
