Poem: Who commands the cavalry of your Wild Life?

Freedom

Made herself known

The day I stood

At the precipice

Of all

I knew to be true

Recognising that

I did not want

To resist

The leap

Into the promises

Of the

Unknown

Retracing

My steps

Backwards

Onto the worn

Path

Of the already

Established

For altered shapes

Had formed

In my awareness

Meaning

Trepidation

Was no more

The goddess-in-chief

Commanding

The cavalry

Of my wild Life

A simple demotion

To march with

And not ahead

Of the troops

Ensured

Her warm hands

Would be held

By my comrades

The unconditional

Faith, Grace and Bliss

Who promised

That upon her leap

Aliveness too

Would accompany

Assisting

To contour her edges

Into the revelation

That she too

Could shift

Her shape

And sprout wings

To fly.
