Clouds Of Witness

There is a cloud of witness,
one so strong, i can't ignore;
this wandering star knows how i feel,
this drifting in the sky knows too;
like a circle kept in the place of a box,
this heavy heart of mine knows too;
Oh! how it is i want to be free,
free to spread my wings and fly,
free to cry aloud like a child,
free to rise and shine just like the sun;
free to sting and flee like the bee.....
and never again to stay in chains-

There is a cloud of witness,
one of such i can't deny;
this empty space knows how i feel,
this dead wall of silence knows too;
like a lone bird drenched in rain,
this lingering wave of misery knows too;
this burden of fear that greives my soul,
Oh! how it is i want to be free,
free to roam and prowl like my thoughts,
free to flow like the tides of the wind;
free to break the grip of fate.....
and never again to stay in chains.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
