Soon I Will Fly
I'm trying to break out of this cage-
To eviscerate from myself the pain so deeply embedded.
They cannot see this rogue part of me
That is now just a kernel of my being.
Soon they will see for themselves
When l let myself soar
To those purple heights:
Up to where no frame may be placed upon me.
I cannot stop it; even now I feel it implode within me,
The urgency to let this song of my freedom,
So sweet and melodic,
Burst free and fly as a pigeon
Over the crease of my innocence.
Innocence that is now rent, lying in shreds
Beneath the shade of my guilt.
