Flying Away A Poem by

That night,
I was too little to cry,
Hidden in mama’s womb
So closely tied.

And during that night,
He took me out
From that warm darkness
To the blinding light,
So serene and bright.

Yet I do not bow
To him
And when time for prayer
Comes
I fly
Away
I lie
I say
I’m busy
But I’m just
Too lazy

Yet I can’t deny
That
When I shut my eyes
Every night
I die,
And then
Every morning,
He
Opens my eyes,
And once again
My breath I sigh
He sets my soul free
Again
Renews my life
Again
Gives me another chance
Again

And yet
Yet I do not bow
To him
Again
And when time for prayer
Comes
I fly
Away
I lie
I say
I’m busy
But I’m just
Too lazy

Yet I can’t deny
All the things
He let me see;
All the gifts
He gave to me
All the perfection
He created me with;
All the blessings
In my life
Isn’t it just so right?
To bend
My knees and bow to him
Tonight?

Because I’m not so little anymore
Can’t hide behind mama’s back
And I don’t want to be
In the dark
Where I can’t see
That
I need him
I want to be
Where I can see
The light
So serene and bright
I want to bow
To him
When I hear that call
And I’ll fly
Away from this world
And stand between his hands
Because I’m not busy
Won’t be lazy
And I won’t deny
That
When I shut my eyes
That tonight
I’ll die,

And then
Tomorrow
Maybe
I may not be alive
