If I Could Fly

If I could fly
would I still live here or would
I find a better place because I could?

If I could fly
would I consult my mind
or my heart for guidance there?

If I could fly
I know my mind holds the
dream, but my heart holds the soul.

Risk is the journey of the soul.

If I could fly
I would like to to think one follows
the heart to that better place that the mind dreams.

If I could fly
I know my gut is always right, because
my mind can play tricks and my heart can be blind.

If I could fly
I would be out of my comfort zone and
step out to new possibilities that provide a great journey.

That's just the way life is.

I Wonder Why

I wonder why the birds
sit on the telephone wire
before the rain.

I wonder why the birds
on the wire face west
before the sunsets.

I wonder why the birds
don't fly away to some
place better.

I wonder why I don't
go, too.
