Fly

Featured Poem written by Joan Toluwani Amos ©


To the one with whom I share so many things in common

From my height, my nails, my sizes- down to shoe size

To you, I sing these lines.


From the very beginning, before my very beginning

The Lord’s offer you accepted

To house my great destiny in you

That part of you, so delicate, yet precious

Where we shared one heart, ate one meal for nine months


Nurturing me you did

From the days I crawled to the days I walked

Still walking and now you tell me I can fly

Constantly your soothing words aid in adjusting my wings to soar high above reproach

To soar high above failure


“As far as your eyes can see, T you can possess it”

These words re-echo daily through my ear drums

Its sound waves descend deep down into the chambers of my heart

Causing it to beat stronger with so much reserve of joy and fresh strength


Today, I write to you, to express just one line of excitement

“Mama, Look, I’m Flying!”
