Feather


Feather soft
Feather calm
Floating
Floating down

Angry winds
Viscious showers
Happily
Happily down

Why can't everyone
Be like you
Feather
Feather calm

Calm, content
Predictable
Floating
Happily down

    A feather was once before
    But never more
    Possessed by another
    Amist many others
    Till one day
    Was cast out with no place to stay
    So it drifts upon the breeze
    Going not where it please
    But swept away in the sport
    Of having been abort(ed)
    By the very one that had nurtured it so,
    Permitting it to grow
    With a spine so strong
    To support it all along.

    Now it drifts to we know not where
    Showing not a single care
    A free spirit on its own
    Traveling where the wind is blown
    Until it will finally come to rest
    Amongst the debris of the past
    To be renewed by Nature's way
    Of recycling outcast everyday.

    Poor feather it knows not
    What its fate is all about
    But has served to keep one warm and dry
    Till the day it drifted in the sunlit sky.

    Shed not a tear for the plumage of the past
    For it will be renewed at last
    To serve others as before
    That's what Nature has in store.
