As High as the Sequoia Tree

As High as the Sequoia Tree

A Poem by Alli

Just some thoughts on the beauty of Sequoia National Park

6000 feet above
Above my fears
Above my doubts
Above my insecurities.
Breathe in the air of freedom
Breathe in the air of joy
6000 feet above
My fears
My doubts
My insecurities.
A sea of clouds, stretching forever
The peaks of mountains poking through
The eagle flies,
The trees sway
And I am 6000 above
My fears 
My doubts 
My insecurities
A hole in my heart
So big I could cry
But it's not a hole of lost love
Or me dying inside.
It's the hole where my demons use to lay
Chaining me
To my fears
My doubts 
My insecurities
Breathe in the scent of life,
Without darkness dragging you down,
Breathe in the scent of family, 
Of closeness so deep it cuts
Of peace so quiet it stings.
Breathe in the air of freedom,
Of what you could be,
If you chose to let go,
And fly
As high as the Sequoia Trees.

I enjoy the repeated verses as well as the visual presentation of this work. I am particularly fond of the final stanza after the last repeated verse.' I look forward to seeing more of your writing!

Writing is my passion, and a way to get out what I can't say out loud. My head is in the clouds 90% of the time, and I love to write fantasy stories and, more recently, poems! Outside of writing I lov.. more..
