Free as a Bird

Free as a Bird

I run like the wind, for my wings are clipped
My spirit beaten, but it is not dead
and you cannot kill it
This bond was unexpected and fierce
A connection steeped in culture 
With deep feelings
Strong like the Oak
But you must know
I will never be your possession
I live in peace within my soul
My free will is my life breath 
Accept me for who I am

    Some strong sense of earth-identity here, winged, rooted, free. – Brendan

    “I will never be your possession.” Truth. It is awesome once we reach this understanding.
