Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

Clip my wings
This allows me to sing
When the truth starts to sting

My dignity, your dignity
Is muddled
Like a dirty day

I am tried of proving to you
That I am smart
With my brain intact

I feel foolish
Like a clown
In a circus act

But this degrading
Has allowed me to fly
Fly away

I am flying to the nearest city
My weakness is no longer a pity
It’s a strength that’s oh so pretty

The key is wrapped
Around my neck
I am ready for new chances

I may have felt trapped
But now I feel anew
Finding my stride again

Distance keeps coming
But I am no longer afraid
I will move forward

I feel myself humming
With other birds
Beckoning a new day

God, shine your light
May it stay bright
And guide my flight
