You have given me wings to fly,
wings to lift me way up high,
and carry me across the sky
and wave my earthly cares goodbye.

But there’s a weight inside my chest,
a nurtured weight against my breast
from which there’s no escape or rest,
that keep me from my Godly quest.

Shall I then leave this weight with You
as better things from You ensue?
And can I then Your dreams pursue
as You take care of this thing too?

Now, watch me soar with all my might
and lift off in a heavenly flight
to help others in their earthly plight
and help them set their wrongs to right.

An original poem by Miekie (Marietjie Uys).
