Journey of a Bird to His Home

Updated on November 11, 2013
Dark Clouds cover the Sky

Dark Clouds hover Around

The Sky I once Knew

Night is round the corner

It’s time for home I flew.

The Wind has stopped completely

As if to make way

For a Storm

My heart Crouches in Fear

Knowing not where

It would be From.

Still I Flapped My Wings

Setting Sail

All Alone

The lone Bird flying
The lone Bird flying | Source

In hope of Reaching before

The Storm gets me

Back to home.

While in mid-sky

The lightning picked up

Blinding my Vision

Taking me to another way

Now Known to my reason.

Lightning Skies
Lightning Skies | Source

Suddenly, I could see

The Storm approaching me

With all its Might

Fangs Bared in Sight

Cruel as Ever

To Consume

My Dainty yet Feisty Soul


I closed my eyes

Giving in to my fate

Of Ultimate Suffering

And Endless Unrest!

Storms Chasing the lone Bird
Storms Chasing the lone Bird | Source

But then Somebody

Picked me up

From Nowhere

And Whisked me away

Past all Storms

Past all cloudy ways

To Skies Somewhere.

As I opened my eyes

I could see the Gates of Heaven

Before me

Gates of Heaven!
Gates of Heaven! | Source

Serene with Grace

Like the doors that lead

To the endless blue sky

Where I could Fly and Fly

For Eternity Given!

As I flew through the Gates

I reached my true home

Leaving behind

A Sea of dark clouds and Storms

That neither can get me Again

Nor would where I ever roam.
