~I never did learn to fly

~I never did learn to fly

A Poem by Frieda P

...and I never did learn to fly
   always trying to take flight
came close a time or two,
  could never quite get off the ground
wings were clipped as a fledgling
       stories written on caged walls
echoed, yet there were no lyrics to sing
   without a voice on a prayer
plummeted to  abysm's bottomless pit
    till I could feel no more
there in the dark stillness lie the secret
          rhythm and music filled the air
Found the poetry within my soul
realized the wings were in my heart
all along, I was meant to dance

Never quite learned to fly, but you know how to dance... Beautifully portrayed piece. This one speaks to the beauty of human nature, in my opinon. We so often try (bang our heads against the wall) to be something that we are not, when the truth of our souls is hidden within all the time, waiting to be unlocked. Really enjoyed this one...

And dance you do and a little flight I would hazard. I don't know but I've always thought one of the greatest tragedies in the world is caging a bird who would fly otherwise. Fantastic as always, Frieda.
