To Be Able To Be Me
As I walk along the lonely coast
I look up and observe the sea eagle
dipping, diving, plummeting
soaring high with a fish in its talons
I cry and ache with longing
For my heart to no longer be heavy
but be light, beautiful and free
to float and soar, be wild
to be able to be me.
