I Soar Like a Bird Into a Colour Filled Day

Today I passed into the brightest of light.
Where on the path I couldn't tell you
I just realized I wasn't being dragged down a path to the worms pit.
I blinked and there I was on the other side of a veil;
Lighter;energised;breathing free;a lighter step;an unburdened sigh;
Filled with colour.

I dream I was on the other side of that veil
Swimming in treacle, thick and black and silent; swimming
against IT’s tide
that flows to the worms black pit.
I tell myself that is now only a dream by the grace of God.
Maybe tomorrow all will be different.
But for now, I sore like a bird into the colours of my day.
Red Dress flaps in the breeze .
Push…….push………..push…
I swing for the trees the blue sky and the sun.
Push…….push…….push ………...…Push….…push…push...
All is calm and peaceful in my world of rhyme and rhythm
Push …….push…….push…….Push……
.push……….Push…………push……………
I wish this moment would never end
…….…..push…………….
……………………………
It stops..

Red shirt flaps against my school desk. Push……push…….push…
My head is pushed full of words and numbers, science and stories.
Push,push,push,push push.
I’m in their world of figures and facts
Push,push,push,push……..push…….push……push
……………push………..can it end?
Push…Can it stop?

Red Nurse's Cape flaps in the breeze
Push, push, push, push, push, push
My heart is pushed in all directions
It cares, it hurts for others pains
Push, push, push, push, push
I’m in a world that needs dignity and compassion
I push for it. Push, push, push, push, push
Push, push, push, push, push, push ………….
It never seems to end

…exhausted….


I stop
Red comfort blanket flaps against my skin
Push…….push………push…….
My body and mind is held cocooned in its distress
pushed to the brink
Push………push…….push………
I'm in a world that pushes answers through a prescribed pill,
For others a self prescribed needle or alcoholic drink
Push, …………………….push
…………………….push………will this ever end?
Help us to make it stop.

Red cross moves quickly through the breeze
Push….push….push….
Push….push….push….
The blue light flashing the siren wails
Push….push….push….
Push….push….push….
I float to the trees and the blue sky and the sun
Push….push….push….
All is calm and peaceful as they push
Push….push….push….it ends.
They stop.

Red poppies flap in the warm breeze
Push……push……..push………
My bare feet push through the meadow of flowers
Push …push ….push
I push my upper limbs tree like towards the blue sky and the sun
Push………………..push……………….push.
All is calm and peaceful
Push…………….push………………..push…………….
I’m in a new world of rhythm and rhyme
Push…………………..push………………..
where peace never ends.

I rest,
