Soaring

Squirming for release, sinews at breaking point
Body rebels, dust expelled

Temporal transgressions, muted though they are
Invade in the company of silence

Sitting in the dark again, agonising confinement
Cold to the bone and quivering with rage

Heart longing, but voice unheeded
Coax me from my cocoon with honeyed words

Show me the free world
Where the ground is vast and the sky my bed

I wake screaming and spent
Earth hurtling toward me

Filling me up
Capturing me totally

At one with the elements, skirting the soil
I rise again, ascend and breathe no more.

Soaring

Artist's Description

To me, one of the things that makes us definitively human is our ability to learn and transform in challenging circumstances. This piece is about that process and what it feels like from start to finish.
