Wings

When birds get ready to fly to the Southern hemisphere
You stare at them and wish for soft white wings
You want to go away for a little while
To rest your head and breathe some sea salt
But you cannot hide somewhere
Or go into hibernation
So, you stay and you fight your battles
You speak your truth and do not allow anybody to tear you down
You bite your lips and blink with your eyes
You keep your smile
And then you start to learn, you learn to grow
You feel that everything is connected
You stop shivering
You are calm and in control
And you can feel your soft white wings
Because they have always been a part of you
