Bald Eagle

by Loolwa Khazzoom • May 7, 2016 • Songs

I am the Bald Eagle
Soaring Soaring
But I was raised in a
Family of mice
Cowering Hiding
And I love them
Love them still
Despite their
Stifling Stifling me
I take flight
Leap from the cliff
Tears in my eyes
Freedom exaltation
And pain
As I say goodbye
