Soar Like an Eagle


Fly away with me.

Flap your wings and soar to heights never imagined.

Be like me, sure and confident, strong and courageous
.
Open your eyes wide as I do and gaze down upon the
earth and all its inhabitants
.
See all the inhumanity, starvation and poverty;
the weapons of mass destruction and killing fields.

Watch the homeless and mentally ill wander aimlessly
in the streets.

Flair your nostrils and breathe in the polluted air and
stench of war-torn bodies decaying in the sand.

Cock your head and listen carefully to the wailing of
mothers, who have lost their children to street-gangs,
drug addiction and abortion.

Clench your teeth and bite your lip as you hold back your tears.

See the dried tears in my eyes, which have seen it all before.

Now, tell me if you enjoyed the ride.

Ask me if I enjoy soaring like an eagle!

Peter,
AWESOME poetry! This is one I wish I had written. I write alot about the homeless, the abused, the down and out. I have intense compassion for them. By the grace of God go I. This is going into my library. Your talent is astonding. I will be reading more of you.

Blessings,
~Linda
