The Gaining

Poetry By: Ian Dawn

I was sitting thinking and bam it just came out

My arms like wings catch the wind and sunlight within

To allow me the greatest gift of all mankind

To glide like an eagle upon the warm east wind

My legs like springs, unfurl to project me high

To allow me the ability to travel effortlessly

To bounce so high I can touch the edge of the sky

My body like armour, protects me against harm

To allow me the prospect of living a long life

To live and love and hold you within my arms

My mind like open doors to take in life's span

To allow me to create, learn and be the best I can

To strive and teach the next generation of man

My soul like a well of acquiescent swirling half light

To allow me the peace I search for each day

To complete my being in the vision of gods sight
