It's certainly been a minute Commaful! But (for now) I'm back with a new poem that I'm actually not quite sure if it makes any actual sense. I'll leave that decision up to you but I hope you enjoy it!

How to Fly Without Wings

Banned by iron bars

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on Buried in flesh

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on Buried in flesh Entombed in muscle

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on Buried in flesh Entombed in muscle A single leg chained

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on Buried in flesh Entombed in muscle A single leg chained Until jailer and jailed alike

Banned by iron bars Fastly rigid stapled on Buried in flesh Entombed in muscle A single leg chained Until jailer and jailed alike They bleed

Even eternally grounded

Even eternally grounded Weighed to walk upon the pavement

Even eternally grounded Weighed to walk upon the pavement Souls still yearn

Even eternally grounded Weighed to walk upon the pavement Souls still yearn For the blues free air

Even eternally grounded Weighed to walk upon the pavement Souls still yearn For the blues free air Desire the wings their being denied

Even eternally grounded Weighed to walk upon the pavement Souls still yearn For the blues free air Desire the wings their being denied For their feathered freedom lost somewhere

Many try yet none succeed

Many try yet none succeed In trying to take flight

Many try yet none succeed In trying to take flight Far above the ground

Many try yet none succeed In trying to take flight Far above the ground Still grasped in the clutch of gravity

Many try yet none succeed In trying to take flight Far above the ground Still grasped in the clutch of gravity Convinced of wings still yet to grow

Many try yet none succeed In trying to take flight Far above the ground Still grasped in the clutch of gravity Convinced of wings still yet to grow Belief at heart lieu of tragedy

Every wingless creature

Every wingless creature Who hungers abandon gifted

Every wingless creature Who hungers abandon gifted By those who soar through the sky

Every wingless creature Who hungers abandon gifted By those who soar through the sky Each harbors a fleet friend

Every wingless creature Who hungers abandon gifted By those who soar through the sky Each harbors a fleet friend A teacher bound to guide

Every wingless creature Who hungers abandon gifted By those who soar through the sky Each harbors a fleet friend A teacher bound to guide A set of wings soundly locked inside

But only once the key spins

But only once the key spins Will feathers finally sprout

But only once the key spins Will feathers finally sprout From the back a burdens free

But only once the key spins Will feathers finally sprout From the back a burdens free Locks hold not a guarantee

True a caged birds heart

True a caged birds heart Is tethered to concern

True a caged birds heart Is tethered to concern But freed clipped wings may swell

True a caged birds heart Is tethered to concern But freed clipped wings may swell To fly far from return
