Wings You Give Me

Wings You Give Me

A Poem by Cynthia Man
"

Something written for a Contest, and it's kinda a real story to me :)) Thanks for dropping time by.

"
Invisible strings tying up my limbs
restricting my movements and mind
forcing me to hug myself so tightly,
closing up the only door out.

No matter how hard I scream, still,
unable to resist the shocking force
of which bound me to myself,   
losing grip of life, of hope, like a wounded bird.

Fear conquering my heart like beast,
unable to see anything but the darkness of my future
 Living as if dead, losing meaning of life,
I stop hoping for being rescued.
 
But then you come to me
cutting off those strings with love and care,
freeing me from my bound, settling me free , 
comforting me that everything will be ok.

With love you teach me not to fear
not to escape from anything again;
With care you teach me to fight for myself,
to resist upon unfairness with courage.

You show me the magic of life, of being alive
painting my world with vivid colors,
giving me a chance to reborn
in the way I'd never imagined.

Thanks for being the person,
who cure my bruises, who give me a new life, 
and to give me feathers to fly high,
so I can stretch my wings wide, fearless.

I love that you use "with love and care"...it is the care that shows you the love...in what the friend does to show you matter. This was full of great wording and brought images of you tangled in fear, a bird caught in a net, and how your friend's love took the time, and the patience, to help you escape. I love that last line! The "fearless" in it is powerful and leaves it on a victorious note...ahh, what love and care can do!

It is true, because some people are born with wings of angels, while others have to earn them. Like I did.

Thank you so much for the encouraging review ! :))
Very nicely done! People in the world could benefit from the heart to which you write these words. In times of peril and unrest, it is in this type of friendship that we as humans can be strong and survive any and all challenges we face. Please continue to grace us with your unclouded truth, love, friendship, heart and mind! We all need hope and love!

This is really good! :) I love the lines :
With love you teach me not to fear
not to escape from anything again;
With care you teach me to fight for myself,
to resist upon unfairness with courage.
