Songs Without Music–My Poetry: Taking it With Me

Paper thin wings

With a hint of uncertainty

Fluttering in my stomach

Getting jammed in my heart

Taking all of my breath away

With your dreams and desires

With your passion and innocence

 

Love, hatred and indifference

Of your many-layered beauty

Gossamer wings glistening brightly

Reflected aged light

From the Sun

That though far

Felt near on that day

 

A feeling I carry with me

Wrapped up tight in my pocket

Of this ragged old coat that I wear

To bring back to me the feeling

Of belonging

Acceptance

Fun

And laughter

And even the sunlight

With her mocking brightness

Follows me

When I am trudging down an unfriendly foreign street

Miserable

But fulfilling my dreams.
