Will I ever truly be free?
To feel the sunshine on my face
And appreciate it without feeling fear?
Fear of my happiness being snatched away
Like the winter brings the night
Will I ever look at the sea
Wonder with marvel
at all the colours
that encompass one another and flourish
At the waves causing havoc
to be taken into its depths
Amongst creatures and nature that have never known me?
Will I ever look at the birds without envy?
Without jealously calculating
the freedom of their journey
The flow and beauty
of their feathers?
Gliding and swimming
across the sky into oblivion
Will I ever embrace the world around me
Without wanting it
to consume me
Will I ever learn to love
to devour me
