POETRY - The Struggle

Dam!…that man - Part I

She was nearly done
She had primped and preened
for this very moment
Every feather finally in place
She was now ready to face the great unknown

Eyes to the heavens
She spread her wings
And took flight
Soaring higher
Wings outstretched as far as they could go
Her heart raced from excitement
As the anticipation of cool wind
Lifted her &
Filled her inner being

Higher and higher she went

as the Fresh breeze of freedom surrounded her
as the scent of a new day and great adventures awaited her

suddenly … she stopped
As if a weight were quickly pulling her down
She struggled but to no avail…

Dam...that man!
