I wasn't good enough to fly
They said when they decided to rip off my wings
I didn't know why
They said all those terrible things

Feather by feather they tore apart
My beautiful wings and most of all
My heart
I couldn't fly anymore, I only could crawl

Didn't anyone care how it made me feel
Didn't anyone care
That I would never fully heal
Wasn't there anyone to keep me from falling into despair

I guess there wasn't a person to save an outcast
So now the only thing to
Do is to try and outlast
The pain, it'll be the hardest thing to do

Besides trying to fly again
It has been so long since I've flown
Am I just setting up myself up for more pain
I could end up completely alone

But I have to try
I have to jump
Just to prove my
Heart is still alive with its constant thump

So here I go
Spreading my wings that have managed to grown back
And I look down at the ground below
At people who's hearts are black

I leap off of the building
To find not a single part
Of me is yielding
I know I am flying, but my heart

Can't take the joy
I no longer give a damn
That I was just their little toy
Because they will never be as happy as I am

Even though I am dying

I. Love. This. Poem. It touches my soul in such a way that... I'm not even sure what to say really to convey what it means to me. Awesome Job, truly beautiful in a sad way.
