AdaptingToGrace – Eileen Meyer – It’s Time To Fly – 30 May 2013

WakingUp8’s avatarCan you feel it? We’re getting closer… Will you force yourself to stay small? Or will you allow yourself to transform and fly?

This was a poem-turned-song I wrote back at the turn of the century (lol). I was feeling it then, and I feel it now – a new ledge, a new threshold in which to make a choice. Using the metaphor of the caterpillar to butterfly, it is now the entire collective making this evolutionary leap – together. It’s time to choose. It’s time for all of us to let go of the fear and fly.

I feel like liquid
one drop on a vine
with no protection
save the lacey lines
holding me
holding me
‘til my soul decides to fly
I spent all of my time
calling out to them with rhyme
dancing and kissing and wine
then I fall
I dissolve
I liquify (while you solidify)
this is the place they all fear
these are the words they won’t hear
this is the truth drawing near
watch the worm as she turns and inspires
watch the willful man stand still

I can’t help it
my instinct grows
the voice of my heart
has always known
lifting me
lifting me
‘til I decide
watch me fly
when you look to the sky
your heart flutters in time
do you ever wonder why
it’s here you feel alive
when will you decide to fly
this is the place they all fear
these are the words they won’t hear
this is the truth drawing near
this is the place of nothing
and everything
watch the worm as she turns and inspires
watch the willful man stand still
goodbye
I must fly
