Stretch

img_3272

it’s been too long
we’ve been aching for days
to reach back into light
and stretch our legs

everyone’s running in place
‘you stand still, it’s plain to see
if only for moment
we believe we are free

it’s been too long
since we stretched for the light
it’s been too long
since we took root in flight

and if we cry, we cry
and talk among the trees
whispers falling softly
with a promise of spring

everyone’s running in place
it’s all plain to see
pretending to stand still
believing they are free

but it’s been too long
since we stretched for the light
it’s been too long
so we yawn …
and stretch for a fight
