Don’t stay

Where you are not free

Can you hear the voice of the wind

Calling your name

Reminding you of how

All of your best dreams

Were of flying free

Yes there are times

To remain

Earth bound

But often when the ache just calls

You have to surrender your body

To the rush

Of wild fire rising

Deep inside your chest

Most especially

When it hurts too much to stay

In places

Never meant

To set your spirit free

Soggy empty places that only bind it tighter

To the heavy quicksand

Of other soul’s suffering
