Crow or Dove

freedom or chains

By HufflecupPublished 3 months ago 1 min read
not my art

crows are called scavengers

but they are our last visitors

they never let us die alone

they never let us decay

they provide a chorus of mourners

a crowd of protectors

a flock of worshippers

our souls take flight

we dance on the winds of night

crows mean untethered freedom

doves may be denizens of peace

do they fear becoming unclean

do they allow others to taint themselves

worshipped by a corrupt hand

an unattainable standard

to shame us in to morality

chained by purity

I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
