There Are Wings

There are wings

That make us light

As their feathers

Lifting us upward

Like a ballerina’s

Leap

Only we can keep going

And dance and fly

And dip and soar

All with our feet

Off the ground

 

There are sacred words

That can do the same

Lift our souls up

And through

Dark barriers

Promises

Pulling us forward

To hope

And forgotten dreams

When all seems lost
