Freedom

on 24/06/2018

Beneath the sands of time,
Buried and burdened and heavy,
Lay my anger, my frustration and my fear.
Humming like a mean dragon,
Alienated in his cave
Hiding, but here, ready to charge.
He listens and awaits
His dreadful cue,
Breathing deeply, eyes open,
Claws ready on the ground.

Silence draws him to the entrance,
Curiosity conquers fear.
He peeks outside.
Sunlight melts away his frustration,
Like water colours washed away.
He steps out, claws drawn in.
The smell of spring fills his nostrils.
Anger conquered in a puff.

He shakes off the sands of time from his wings,
Spreads them and soars.
Happy.
