Spreading wide ready to fly, I see the beauty that is the wings
Standing on the edge, I look down at the people
My body ready to step over the edge, to fly and be free
With shaky breaths this is it, the time to see if I can fly
Slowly stepping off the edge, I close my eyes, my wings opening wide
Yet I fall down, faster and faster, I don’t fly, I can’t fly
The wings broke, battered and bruised unable to help me stay afloat
My body screaming as I plummet to the ground
My wings trying to fly, trying to lift my high but they continue to break
The pressure pushing down too much for them to survive
My mind asking why, why me and why now?
Why pick me to fall down, when my wings do not work?
My body hits the ground, breaking screams all around
Struggling to my feet, I look around at where you have exiled me to
A place that is alien to me, everyone staring at me like a foreign body
Running through these dark streets I wonder where you are?
The light has slipped away, just the darkness and hate surrounding me
Hiding away, a corner of safety I weep why could I not stay where it was light?
Why would you exile me this way when you said you loved me?
Why would you tell me to jump into a cruel dark world knowing my wings would break?
Piece by piece I lose my wings, the beautiful white feathers fading black
Dropping to the floor, till I am one of them, the darkness you let us become
The darkness I hate and never wanted to become.
