Waiting: One Day I’ll Fly Away

Waiting here before
this wall of burnt brick reaching
high above my head

freedom seems distant
a mirage shimmering in
the distance; promised.

Hope deferred makes sick
the longing heart, but in this
sliver of breaking light,

the echo of the
promise rings, one day I’ll spread
my wings and fly away.
