Wings of Power

Sometimes it's hard to remember
That greatness comes first from
Something so small and dependent.

Just as the Bald Eagle chick
That hatches so helpless
Must depend upon parents,

So was the growth of our country,
Finding her wings with thirteen
Colonies and a Declaration of Independence.

Boasting freedom to be necessary 
And proper and showing
The world her wings of greatness.

First a poult and then a
Proud parent herself,
Soaring over all the world

Proclaiming that others
Will enjoy freedom,,
While protecting her domain.

    Very expressive and descriptive work about the great Eagle..I get the feeling that it is also metaphoric..Thanks for the kind review of my work..Sara

    Nice concept too bad it costs so many lifes..I believe each nation must stand up in their own ways for their self's..and a s we saw in India and Egypt peaceful protest does work too! Hope you are well and happy, a sweet write above..I'm just not a nationalist ;) light & love

    Oh yes, the Majestic Eagle's humble beginning. It is my belief Ray that even God was humble faith without being, in the beginning before he began to speak things into existence. That God's being was spoken into existence by conscience faith in word's potential. His moral is love. All things live, move and have their being in Him. Agape, Moses
