Wings

When life throws you a bitter pill, it is best to remember - it is for our own good.

I am ready to leave everything behind
Take a leap of faith
And seek my destiny, build my own nest

I require little wings of encouragement, a little humble pie to swallow - a huge dose of commonsense.

I need to take charge
And charter my own path
Not according to the whims and fancies

Others will tell me, it is a dangerous world out there. Find your wings. Take it slow.

I shall find my wings to sail through
With prayers that enlighten and strengthen
My purpose and devotion

Here is my hand, held out. Please lead the way.

    1. The beauty of poetry is that people see different things and have different reactions to the words used.

      Thanks, Sir Hank for dropping by.

    1. Thank you Kat. when I was penning this down, I wasn't thinking of gentle. Looking back, yes...I believe so. There was a quiet acceptance.

  3. Oh I just know those wings will lift you high - we are meant to soar, I believe, not stay, frightened, on the ground. Brave you for taking the leap! It will be a wonderful journey.I will enjoy watching.
