Brush Off Your Wings

 by Erik Hajer


Grounded yearning to fly

 No longer willing to just get by


Will my dreams fizzle and die?


 The answer is no I do decry!

 This is my life and not a flyby


 Don’t know how but sure know why

 I must brush off my wings and take to the sky


 Ask for help and get a reply

 Jump I hear you are powerful and spry!


Your wings are ready no need to be shy

 With faith and courage you will defy


Positive thoughts and actions I will apply

 Forces of nature will be my ally


I am ready, I am ready, I shout and cry

 I am ready to soar for now I know I can fly!
