Weightless Soul: a Poem for our Childlike Joy.

childlike joy

Once there was a little girl
Who learned it to be true,
The world is always spinning
So she started spinning too

She spun around in circles
Longing for freedom abound,
She knew not of the earthly rules
That held her on the ground –

She swung her arms wide open,
Threw her head up to the sky,
And in a moment’s magic
The little girl began to fly

She soared into the heavens,
Viewed her loved ones down below,
And wondered what the world could be
If only they’d let go

She flew above the treeline
And embraced the gentle blue,
Weightless and untethered,
Her soul was made anew

Her laughter echoed freely
As she danced upon a cloud,
And wished for all to find their joy
And speak their hearts aloud.
