you can find your way out of the woods; the being
raised among the wolves; and you will seem
a queen among the flocks of swans, who
only know uncertainty when those forces unforeseen
confront them with mortality - but it is a rarity
to exist in that sphere, constantly, and neither
crown, nor hard-won wings are assistance
when it comes to the everyday things
(and so the emails remain unanswered, and you silence the telephone's rings)
just remember it means you made it out,
from wolves, and the chill twilight of the trees..
remember that there's starlight now
with time, you'll find your new bearings.
