To Be a Mountain Mover

A Mountain Mover
By Sharon Lea

I want to be a mountain mover
mountains hold people back
create walls of sadness
that hide so much truth and beauty

I want to push and kick away boulders
so, beautiful ballerinas can twirl
with grace and dignity
wings without fear

I want to be a mountain mover
crushing boulders blocking the path
that keep spirits from being free

I want to bring a kaleidoscope of hope
to budding young artists
who draw of pretty cats and fishes
rainbows and raindrops
giving voice to their hearts
wings without fear

I want to be a mountain mover
building bridges to eliminate the barriers
that keep people from their potential
to be leaders in our communities
who have so much to say and do
if only given the chance
to dunk basketballs like a pro
or help a teammate to walk
wings without fear

I want to be a mountain mover
mountains hold people back
in shyness and uncertainty
giving strength and courage
to beautiful hearts and awesome minds
who speak with confidence
raising their voices with pride
sharing love and kindness
wings without fear
