Flight

Flight

A Chapter by Constance-Outspoken
"

A short...

"
In the depths of a weary heart
there is movement:
Flutters scurry to replace
broken shutters
but the darkness won't remain.
This is the part
where the cornered bird
always flew away...
but somehow her fear instead
managed to abscond.
One touch, and she is tamed
not within a cage,
but with limitless freedom at last
she's learned to soar.

i love how just one bold move can make a normally timid person see himself/herself in a self-confident light..."the darkness" is fairly easily repelled once you can wrap your mind around it and conquer it

it was great how you compared such a moment to a cornered bird. lovely image. nice poem

Settling is always so hard, especially for young teens like myself ;) Your words carry so much weight and truth. Relationships shouldn't be about restrictions bounds and limits, Thanks again for another brilliant poem :)

This reminded me of a nature poem I read once by the naturalist Loren Eiseley. Oh, the two are far different; one from the other, but the feeling evoked by each is very similar. It is a feeling of a thing trapped that ought to be free. Or as William Blake said, "A robin redbreast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage" Very nice.

Short but very powerful in its statement... we often have t take what we can get and do the best with it and still know we have limits. Very nicely stated.
