One can never consent to creep

“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” Helen Keller

By Elvira

Wings                          NOT                 angel
Himself            fastened them
Into, beyond                Earthly matters,
I leap —
Knowing NOT              if I’ll fall.

Fall,                             I did.

Yet, His Balm                          soothed
Wounds                       still                  visible —
I look to heaven
Not afraid                    to see His Face.
I leave this duplicity,
called Earth,
