When her Wings Unfolded
By Debra S. Mascarenhas


When her wings unfolded
she fluttered them
she was excited
she knew she had gained her liberty;
and she gently lifted her wings
she flew far far away.

As she flew she felt
the wind on her face
and was ready to brace
any oncoming storm;
she faced them well
and flew higher and higher.

She did not turn back
but kept flying
further and further
higher and higher
she flew to where the eagles dared.

When her wings unfolded
she got her freedom.
