you've always had them
your wings. you know.
they were there the day you were born. untouched. perfect.
are you waiting for the perfect dream to use them. wings don't need dreams
did you know that other people see our wings long before we ever do
i saw wings on a foster mom at the grocery store yesterday. she doesn't know how their brightness almost blinded me.
i have wings. they're kind of green and sparkly according to my friend diana. they really got a workout when i lived in indiana and worked with children who lived in group homes. lately they feel a bit dried up and crusty. my fault.
do you help out in a food pantry. a homeless shelter. watch your neighbor's children for her when she can't find a sitter. shovel the driveway next to yours just because. maybe you deliver meals on wheels. or talk and gently pat the hand of your elderly neighbor whose family doesn't visit often enough.
who is it lately that's been talking about the wings they saw you wearing
when you thought the only thing they were pointing at was your new haircut.
come on. don't be shy.
i just know you've been doing something good
