Spread My Wings

Spread My Wings

A Poem by Evelynn

I jumped through hoops
I smiled and lied
I never yelled
I never cried

I never thought 
I never quit
I never wanted
More that this

But, now that’s changed
I’ve seen the truth
I know now
It was you who stole my youth

I won’t stand here anymore
Like your personal puppet on a string
It’s time for me to spread my wings
Despite of everything

That was too deep and strong
May you would always remain the same way

This was a lovely piece, a reflection of self, a strong heart and mind. Letting go is one of the hardest things to do.
