Wings of a bird

The sun warmed my pale, old skin
I felt alive for the first time again
Today was a new start for me
My eyes opened and able to see

I shared a smile with those I met
My heart full of hope and debt
Grateful for another chance to live
An opportunity to love and give

A new mindset on a fresh path
No longer in the misery and wrath
Changed my ways and said a prayer
I was finally someone able to care

Knowing the road would be hard and long
But, I made a choice to sing a song
Singing the song of a lone bird in flight
I spread my wings and headed for the light.

A poem by Jason S. Sullivan, 07-23-20
