Poem – ” Lungta “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

LUNGTA

 

For 8 years I was held down

given frowns

I was played

like a carousel arcade

right to the end-

but I held my heart high

it was my rosetta stone

my guide – when I was alone

now as I rake up the dust

wings form on my back

white…and black!

my feet lift off the ground

 

I am flying,

and smiling…
