i can't accept your crawl...

let's fly, because you are capable of it
yes, but can we?

we are scared

let's fly, you can hold on and if you fall, i will hold
our people don't want us to

i can't give up because you do every moment
i see the star speck in your soil
you insist on seeing just your face in the mirror

crawling in your mental cage, hurting your wings, even as you continue decay as a worm,
i refuse to give up appealing to your real self!
