Sanctuary

I drift, I dream, I rise, I float
Let me rise, don’t hold me back
Let me see the light, don’t hold me back
The waves are calm, I will see the light 
I will reach out don’t hold me back
The weight is too much

I had enough, your food tasteless 
I want to leap from the heights 
I will make the fall I will break bone
You won’t be there to break the fall
Crush bone, knives out, I will fall
I love the fall, let it crush me

I will find light someday I will find my place someday



 My son wrote this Inspired by the novel " The unbearable lightness of being"

    Your son wrote a very powerful piece of art here Manel. Very deep through the core of one's soul. Thanks for stopping by to comment on my poem Shadows of the Past. Wishing you a beautiful weekend. Hugs and love, Gail
