Wings


Look at you
you're on the top of it all
you're not afraid
that you might fall
and even if you do
you have wings

you can fly
away from regret
away from failure
from pain, and yet
you can do
so many other things
you have wings

unlike me
unlike anything I'll ever be
I'm proud of you, I am
and I'll tell you when I can.
