~ W I N G ~ Take my wings if you must, but you will never diminish my spirit.

Blackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take these broken wings and learn to fly All your life You were only waiting for this moment to arise "Blackbird" —The Beatles

broken

broken were my wings

broken were my wings left shattered

broken were my wings left shattered beyond repair

for those who wander by

for those who wander by hearing but not seeing

for those who wander by hearing but not seeing a bundle of ebony feathers

for those who wander by hearing but not seeing a bundle of ebony feathers against the heavy curtain of night

the cry of help carried by the wind

the cry of help carried by the wind met by no one

the cry of help carried by the wind met by no one gradually fading

the cry of help carried by the wind met by no one gradually fading lost

yet not all was broken

yet not all was broken I knew my freedom depended not on my wings

yet not all was broken I knew my freedom depended not on my wings but in my heart

for my eyes can still hunt

for my eyes can still hunt my voice can still sing

for my eyes can still hunt my voice can still sing and my feet can take me

for my eyes can still hunt my voice can still sing and my feet can take me to places I've never been

I am still a free bird at heart

I am still a free bird at heart as free as can be.
