Black Bird - Poem by Taylor Marriott

Black bird singing in the dead of night,
Take these broken wings and learn to fly,

All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to arrive.

Black bird singing in the dead of night,
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see,

All your life,
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Black bird fly,
Black bird fly,
Into the line of a dark black night.

    It is the same as stealing. If you can not write your own poetry then just read
    what others write and learn. (Report) Reply
