I Yearn to be Free

And I yearn to be free

To soar the heavens

With feathered wings

And seeing eyes

Escape the past

Escaping me

There is peace

I sense its warmth

But it is elusive

Lost in the shadows

Of myself

I yearn to be free

To find that inner me

That rock of stability

To free the shackles

That seem to hold me

I put them there

Of that I am aware

But somehow

I lost the key

Somewhere in a cluttered me

I’m getting closer

I know it

To the change

That will set me free

To soar and finally see
