I came into the world blind and bound by broken wings. Shrouded by darkness, I feel the wind ruffle my feathers provoking the longing inside my heart. I leap; as high as I can hoping the breeze will catch me. Save me. Keep me. I spiral towards the ground, my heart thundering with fear and excitement. In my last moments, I know I am blessed to feel the air between my feathers and kiss the sweet earth for the last time.
I start again.
