Favorite poems Your World

Your World

Your world is as big as you make it.

I know, for I used to abide

In the narrowest nest in a corner,

My wings pressing close to my side.

 

But I sighted the distant horizon

Where the skyline encircled the sea

And I throbbed with the burning desire

To travel this immensity.

 

I battered the cordons around me

And cradled my wings on the breeze,

Then soared to the uttermost reaches

With rapture, with power, with ease!

By Georgia Douglas Johnson

 

 

Theme song of the week

La Isla Bonita with Madonna. This song represents my childhood and early teenage years (8-14). I have spent many hours miming this song in front of the mirror. My poor parents had to here on repeat for hours and hours… When I was 14 and had at last managed persuade my parents to leave me home alone when they went to our cottage, I put this song on full volume and danced around the living room. I had the greatest feeling of freedom at that moment. When it got dark that night that feeling changed to sheer terror..but that’s another story. Put on the song and dance with me : )
