today you are...


Yesterday you were a blackbird Full of uncertainty Fraught with complexity Stained with pain and sorrow

You fly with strength, Bitter assuredness with passion in your stride And burden on your shoulders

Today you are a dove White with love Delivering freedom With harmony and music

you carry redemption with you you fly towards happiness music radiates from your soul and mingles with the ears of others

Tomorrow you are a sparrow Pure with Unhindered compassion Dark with intellectual deepness streaked with both sides of love

you fly close to the earth breathing hope on the millions exchanging glances with those you pass wholeheartedly keeping the ones you love
