Like The Wind


IMG_0074When leaves rustle like living things in your presence

When you are the match that lights the forest while others lie sleeping

When you decide to have faith in yourself

To love what you want

To take the power to control your life

To bloom as legend –


You will live in the flames.

You will burn too brightly, too wild to handle.

You will run too swiftly for anyone to catch you.

You will run –

Until your lungs ache

Until your heart splits open

Gasping at life

That can no longer hold you.
