Longing to fly



I feel like a caged bird

longing for freedom

to fly

expectations falling hard

why I need grace

not to do whatever I want
to live flippant in sin

but only because

my heart so full

of the not

just never enough

and shame

burrowing its head
into my soul

so flawed

and imperfect

and hovering behind a wall
of unsuccessful attempts

and it exhausts

until this vulnerability

catching my breath
and turning me around
to see


calming my fears
with His presence
restoring my broken
with His grace
and breaking my heart
with His love

and then

having permission
to be both flawed and loved


to be myself

no longer needing

to fly
