A Soul in Flight…my dreams of solace

A Soul in Flight...my dreams of solace
A Soul in Flight…my dreams of solace

My solace…

Pensive, lost in dreams,
where thoughts like birds aloft,
seek nothing but their state of freedom,
and none shall take from this,
these moments of boundless being,
high above the world of troubles,
far from dark and lurid schemes,
just a weightless seeing
of human plight.

High above the clouds,
there is no violence, no contention,
just a profound connection to life,
no human struggle,
no cause and effect consequence,
simply the experience of freedom,
not littered with doubt and fear,
but rather a conscious steering
of the soul to right.

Dreams are my solace,
escape from burden and oppression,
where flight is all I am,
mind acutely attuned to time’s undertaking,
yet within it, autonomous,
not tethered to its will,
just accepting of it,
and I transcend myself in form,
let flesh fade and mind ascend.

How I am gifted with sight,
to relinquish my plight,
even for a moment,
and see beyond myself,
into the a dark and unknown eternity,
one day to grasp and
let light abide,
my ride a continuation
of a soul in flight.

    There is comfort in flight, I often wish I could sprout wings and fly into the clouds like birds. To leave everything earthly behind me, look down only upon the sadness below, but keep my fixation on the air above me. Let the winds glide me along as I feel the peace in my soul. I felt the airiness in between your verses Tony. Well penned my friend. Keep soaring and letting your soul and heart control your pen.

    If only the mind was not clouded by our every days, violence, negativity, racial undertones, etc… how lovely would it be to be free from all this evil, to soar upon high and profess the soul to the heavens, releasing the burden of the mind and in recompense the clarity to see for the first time. Excellent work my friend.
