small wings.

By Flavorless

tiny bird with small, small wings

missing feathers, plucked like strings

scared of what the sky might bring

makes flying a dreadful thing

she's begging others to carry her

doesn't care if he has wings or fur

she's desperate to be finally sure

that her broken wings wil not deter

    Simple yet so complex, the self loathing within this piece just juts raw emotion and lets the mind paint vivid pictures with the words that you have used. Great write, I hope it gets easier.
