Like a bird, set free from my cage.
A rat who just escaped the death trap.
A lion who dodged a bullet.
A deer who outran his predator.
A sheep who outsmarted the wolf.
A dog who just gave out his first woof.
A cat who caught a butterfly and then let it free.
A girl who’s found her soul mate.
A warrior who’s come home from a bloody battle and lives to tell his tale.
A mother who holds her first child.
I feel, I feel, oh so lucky
to be born into a world
with so much to offer
with so much of depth
with so many stories
that it makes me almost miss a breath.
