Wings Of The Son

It hurts
it hurts bad Ma
are they gonna break my wings
don't let them clip my wings Ma
don't let them do it!
I want to love so powerfully, 
do they understand what love is
they'll try to burn my heart alive
you know it don't you!

I used to get so scared Ma
I could feel the acid on my ribs,
not anymore though,
thank you for giving me diamond wings Ma,
they haven't burned my wings yet
they're never gonna do it
I have the divine passion and wisdom
they can't destroy me,
now my hurt swells into love glory!
Thank you for bleeding for me Ma -

J.A.B.

The anticipation, and experience of heart battles in the flesh, shared and witnessed between parents and children is a war of emotions that often determines the nature of life for us Joe...J.A.B.

This is very different from what I've read of you in the past. There's a rawness and an edge too it ... I'm not sure whether to feel hurt and sorrow for the son, or appreciation and gratitude for Ma's sacrifice. You move me in a way that's difficult to describe ... well penned, friend!

The love and hard lessons of life shared between Mother and child are often very raw and sacrificial, the pain, maturity, and courage of my heart has spoken very purely in this poem, thank you for recognizing that Timothy. Your sympathy is profound to me, your feelings describe a soul that understands...J.A.B.

There are only two choices avaliable to us with a hurt heart Linda, break or burn more brightly, although sometimes we must break a little so to reinforce a stronger soul my Sphinx...I love sharing my heart with you...J.A.B.

Filturing the hurt into something savory and everlasting, the flair of self-worth amongst all odds and the plea and heartfelt determinations refills my heart with joy, Justin. This bond between two fiery souls is unbreakable. We must protect and perfect our wings each and everyday, and we dont have to do it all alone. Fear is the beginning of tremendous growth. Amazing verse...Love Always, Laura

To have the heart taken into the coldest, deepest shades and temperatures of darkness, and to emerge into the most sublime heights of love, creativity and perseverance is a miracle that I thank Providence for everyday in my unique ways Laura. To fill you with passion and light is a craving for me sweet Poetess...your wisdom envelopes my sensitive soul tonight, with you I share in love...J.A.B.

There is a deep sense of rebirth, and going forth into the world with a pure heart with limitless potential if we can overcome the pain and persecution in the darkness so prevelant amongst humanity that we all must experience and try to triumph over Dalia. I knew you would understand the agony that this poem opens with, and the glory of love it finishes with Dalia. Your sensitive eyes sparkle beautifully in the waters of my soul tonight my Violet Poetess...J.A.B.
