Clipped Wings

Broken wings, mine are
Unable to lift off the ground
Bruised from the jagged cliffs
I’ve fallen upon

With fear in my heart
I glance upward
Wishing to depart
From the rough terrain
I’ve landed near

Clipped wings, mine are
Unable to leave this land
Numb from the harsh winds
I’ve been surrounded by

Yet, even so
With such circumstances
There is hope in my heart
As I somehow find
My breath again

Here, in the midst of the storm
My feet are found
Eager to start
This journey again

Lifting my eyes
In hopes to return
To the skies
A pulse has begun to beat
Faintly, but steadily

For here we’ve discovered
Clipped wings, mine are
Yet, letting go
Brings us freedom to fly
