Clipped Wings – A Quadrille

Clipped Wings

As hard as you might try
I will never be controlled
Thinking my spirit can be grounded
By clipping my wings
Will only make me run faster
Like the wind I can never be caught
I am free to blow whichever way I choose

    Love the truth in your words, “by clipping my wings, will only make me run faster” controlling another is the best way to lose them! 💯
