I am an Eagle
I am an eagle, as an eagle I do soar,
to heights of unimaginable realms,
where I've never been before.
Traveling places only dreamed of,
the sights beyond belief.
I am an eagle,
be it only when I sleep.
Last night I traveled higher then I ever have before,
ascending almost endlessly,
till planets became my floor.
There is no end to this wonderful space,
the mystical doors open wide.
I am an eagle and fly high.
Stretching my wings and lifting them up,
and bringing them down with a push
I feel my feet leaving the cliff,
as air currents lift with a whoosh,
this is where the trips begin,
and My soul begins to soar.
I am an eagle my soul sings.
All my years upon this earth,
such freedom I have never known,
bending my head, banking to right,
looking down upon my home.
Seeing the sun, moon, planets and stars
never once ever feeling alone.
Earth standing out like a magnificent jewel,
for a moment I forgot it was home.
From a distance it looked like a beautiful place,
so peaceful, Loving and clean.
Then I remembered how it really was,
what a shame it became so obscene.
