Winged.........By Kimberleigh

Although I am not like the others
for I do not have their fine colors
or their grace as they fly through life
I have only my own quiet beauty
I do not feel the need to flock together
for I am happy in my own company
surrounded with my own song
even if no one hears my voice
I have been given wings to fly
to take to the sky and soar high above
I do not need to follow in the paths
left long ago in the sands
I find respite between flights
to view the earth as it is
down were the ones without wings
Only dare to dream, dare to soar

Kim,

This was incredibly beautiful! A piece about confidence, and peacefulness while listening to one's own drumbeat. From another who beat's to her own drum, I loved it!

I loved this!
"I have been given wings to fly to take to the sky"

I keep forgetting to fly. I needed this reminder :)

This is just... perfect! Agree with TJ. The form is so elegant and simple yet it has silent power... like it a lot!

And you do soar
but you are never alone
for when you spread your wings
I am often tagging along

So lovely
