"Emancipation"


He sits in solitude-perched upon his throne.
No exterior boundaries or obstacles stand.
His injury has become his internal prison. Grounded by his wounded wing he is kept enclosed.

 Bound, chained and cast off-the king is a convict.
Our captivity is the connection.
We long to fly embrace and surrender to the blue.

To the freedom. There is a likeness in his stance and grandeur. Predators –we thirst for the hunt. Humiliated or humbled? We are alone, desperate to return to the alpine that echoes in his mournful eyes. He sits.

A monument to the passers-by, the look of pity delivered by every face. He envies them. Their liberty, free will and ability to fight for all we thought we wanted.

He sits. A memorial reminding her that there is a king conquering the sky, within. Ready to spread the working wings of life and fly into the unknown. Soaring into the abyss of existence, aware of the uncertain struggles the eagle can endure.

Last one Standing

First they came for the communists

And I did not speak out – because I was not a communist

Then they came for the socialists

And I did not speak out –because I was not a socialist

Then they came for the homosexuals

And I did not speak out – because I was not a homosexual

Then they came for the trade unionists

And I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews

And I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me

And there was no one left to speak for me.
