Heavy Wings, a poem

Posted on Jul 22, 2015 in All Posts, Poems

Heavy wings,
is this what it has
come to?


Are you
so easily caged?

The war
is raging.

Sharpen your
talons on
granite peaks

and take
to the sky.

Wins and losses
are mere fleas
in your feathers

(and time is
full of potential);

shake them off

and bleed
like kings.
