Eagles

Eagles

A Poem by Ashe Conten

Sometimes things don’t go according to plan

Sometimes the bird refuses to land

I know I

Would want to stay in the sky

But first things first

I’d have to learn how to fly


My wings are smaller

Than they used to be

My wings are smaller

Than I’d like to think

But I still,

Yes I still

Manage to hop along

I still,

Oh, I still

Manage to hold on


If I could just find something

To grasp on to

Maybe something more than a thread

Something to tie

Around my head

So it won’t fall off

The cliff again

If I could just find someone

To carry me

Through the sky

And over the sea

I’d ride on the back of eagles if they’d

Only put up with me


But first things first…

I’d have to learn to fly


My wings are smaller

Than they used to be

My wings are smaller

Than I’d like to think

But I still,

Yes I still

Manage to hop along

I still,

Oh, I still

Manage to hold on

Whoah, oh, hold on

Hold on

Hold on, oh

Hold on

This poem makes me happy. I found this line rather funny 'I’d ride on the back of eagles if they’d
Only put up with me'!

An interesting piece; it is heavy with desperation. As I was reading it I sensed the inherent rhythm and recognised it as a song lyric. So many of my own poems are, in fact, song lyrics. Nice work.

I like this a lot! The desperation of the speaker is heavy and hopeful.

Nice rhythm and repeating phase; get a hopeful feeling at the poem's end. I see go to YouTube and record the song. What accompaniment would you have? Piano? Guitar?
