For today's prompt. Proud of this one :D

I'll Live

My wings were beautiful, the softest around with the purest colour of white.

I felt free, my wings were my might.

They took me anywhere I wanted to be.

To anything I wanted to see.

It was somewhat a talent of mine, wanting to know all there is to know.

My wings therefore never stopped to grow.

However, one day everything changed.

The path I had set in life got estranged.

My beautiful wings kept losing their feathers;

My beautiful wings kept losing their feathers; slowly,

My beautiful wings kept losing their feathers; slowly, silently,

My beautiful wings kept losing their feathers; slowly, silently, but gradually.

They started disappearing the same as they had appeared;

They started disappearing the same as they had appeared; magically.

My late-night flights were replaced by late-night shows.

You know that feeling, as if time slows?

My life once filled with excitement was now a life gone silent.

I felt incredibly sad and alone.

Nothing to do, nowhere to roam.

I missed my wings, they were my all.

They protected me, so I wouldn't fall.

They got me places I had never been,

They let me meet family and friends akin.

That's when it dawned on me.

I didn't need my wings to be who I wanted to be.

I might've lost my wings, but I hadn't lost myself.

My wings didn't make me enjoy life itself.

Life is something precious, beautiful, it has so much to give.

So I know that no matter what,

So I know that no matter what, I'll live.
