Dreaming - Poem by Angel E. Broberg

Here I sit in darkness both day and night
Trapped by the sharpness of throat to knife
Though I move freely inside my cage,
I can’t get out – towards my escape

I’d like to soar all high and free
Above the clouds is where I would be
Too high up to risk getting shot down
and I’d try to never return to this town

Until I can be an eagle or dove
Until I can see the clouds from above
I’ll sit in my cage, looking up to the sky
And the knife goes away when I’m dreaming I can fly

    And fly you will Angel.... For the knife is but an instrument with a purpose... and your heart knows that within your dreams is freedom and this freedom is borne into reality thru your words. Set free the eagle and fly as close to the sun as you can...embrace it's warmth, it's golden light, it's not fear falling back to earth, Great Ink here Angel... it's symbolism is simply amazing! ; -) Kelly.

    Thank you for the concern Olumide, but I don't need any God, I have poetry. And music and family and friends.
    The knife is no so much an actual knife as it is a symbol for feeling trapped by any situation. And ultimately the poem represents the ability to hope and dream, though one is seemingly in a bad situation atm.

    Very sad note to read. You dont need the knife. What u need is the word of God.. He brings peace if u venture out of that cage to talk to him. I know what it is like to be in a cage but only the word brought me through and am offering u the same hand i got in return..Hope this helps. (Report) Reply
