Broken Wing


Susan Rippe

Soaring and flying,

going the distance as freedom rings,

enchanting to the ear.

Smiling, so happy to be me.

Things have now changed.

With Broken Wing,

I stare and I wonder.

How could this be?

Like my heart, I am broken,

I will never be free.

I stand grounded. Alone. Abandoned.

You fly with the eagles, I stand with the sea.

Broken, mind, body and soul.

Time will heal my Broken Wing.

My heart will grow cold,

perhaps to the lowest degree.

Life will go on.

I will break my Wing again, But...

My heart belongs to me.
