Freedom in the Wind


I look for you,
but you’ve disappeared.
Leaving me to drown,
my feelings swallowing me whole.
You went away,
left me to fade.
I didn’t know why, what to do.
So I ran out the door,
I took to the sky,
and I flew.
Away from the world.
Leaving the cage you trapped me in.
I soared to my freedom,
never looked back.
Free as a bird.
Free in the air.
I sail through the sky.
A freedom I never knew.
It fills my heart,
A new wonder.
Wind whipping my hair,
trailing me freely.
Saved by the wind,
not by you.
I glide through the air,
calm now.
For I have found,
Freedom in the Wind.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
