The words of wisdom have been spoken into my life.
I feel ready even though I have never taken this flight before.
I ruffle my feathers,
Looking around me, knowing that the seasons are about to turn.
I know I have to fly away, where I do not know.
But the matriarch, has been gathering us all.
Encouraging us to listen to the voice within us to guide us to our appointed place.
Where the sun (as it was said), was brighter and warmer
Than all the summer days put together in my young life,
My wings are strong enough, to fly me higher and higher,
To glide upon the mighty hands of the great winds.
I have to fly higher and higher into greater altitudes to enjoy an effortless flight.
In anticipation, I try my tiny wings, wondering would they carry me.
To these greater heights that I had heard so many times
I could achieve...
Today is the day. I feel afraid, but yet, the self-navigating system within me tells me that I was ready
I drop out of the window that I was birthed.
Knowing I would never return again to nest there.
My wings automatically stretch open as I feel the winds beneath my wings.
Pushing me up and up.
In a way talking to me, encouraging me that I would know which way was home.
Without thinking, without effort the flight plan unfolded.
Deep within me, it seemed all along it was already there.
Courage leaped on me and I knew I had to trust and obey the voice in my conscience to take me to the place that I have never been,
A place that every great and small bird in the sky was busy chirping about
It felt like I was the only tiny bird up in the Heavens.
As an invisible mighty hand scooped me
And directed me north,
North for the winter
To a place where this little sparrow can find a nest within Zion

"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
