Broken Wings

By; John “ Speedy “ Hartman

Born into life
with a disability Isn’t fair.
A life uncertain
full of despair..
Never knowing what
the future will bring.
For one can’t fly
with broken wings

For one can’t fly with broken wings

Barriers come
In many forms.
To test our faith
and ability to perform.
I’ll always stand tall
continue to sing.
For one can’t fly
With broken wings

For one can’t fly with broken wings

As the year go by
I’ve learned many things.
For a happy life
you don’t need wings..
To soar with other’s
Is a mental thing.
So don’t be held back
By broken wings

Yes, you can still fly high with broken wings

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
