fly

she had tired hands and twisted feet
but still she kept on trying, walking, never stopping
worried that if she stopped moving
the world of cards she’d built would slip

bowed down by her guilt and cares
she walked past crowds of faceless people
weary from her endless journey
she kept on trying, walking, never stopping

but she had wings! oh she had wings!
she could fly! if only… she had dared to try
all it took was just a stretch
to reach beyond what she could see
she had wings! but they were limp
her destiny hung by her side

her spirit crippled by deep fear
she kept on trying, walking, never stopping
faster with greater urgency
till the day she tripped upon her twisted feet

oh! she stretched out with great horror
in defense against the fall that lay before her
but she didn’t fall down as she thought she would
she fell upwards where her wings now could

fly

We were made to soar, to fly above the challenges we face. Consumed by our surroundings, sometimes we forget it was built into our very core… the ability to fly. The beautiful core of our being – Jesus Christ – placed within us by a very loving and accepting Father. So fly. Dare to stretch out and do what you were made to do. Fly. – written in Nov 2007
