morning thought

sometimes
I am an old oak tree
with roots deep and sure

sometimes
I am a paper plane
with flight unknown

sometimes
I am a railway line
with destinations set

sometimes
I am an unspoken word
with time slipping away

sometimes
I wish
that I was not
so strong
just as much as
I wish
that I was not
so weak

    That’s the beauty of poetry…
    The emotions unbound!
