I was walking down the road
And along came a bird
He looked into my eyes
He stared deeply into me
I felt his Freedom
There was something so appealing about
To gently move from flying, to sitting, to searching, to
I chuckled at the simplicity of it all.
I said dear bird will you show me the Way.
Can you share with me how you live so easy.
He said oh dear child it is within you already, Just let go
Follow your senses, your instincts; trust your body, your vision, your need
Just let go and follow my Way.
But I am frightened I said, What if….
What if you crash, he said what if you crash
He said look closely at me, very close, See I am missing some feathers, I have some scars
But I still Fly and I have not lost my Way.
Yes Raven, Yes Raven
I shall follow your Way till I can fly no more.
