She looks at him with disgust in her eyes
For in her heart, she’ll know he’ll never fly
He lacks the hope to carry him
The faith to empower him
And the courage to make him unstoppable
She stretches her wings, feeling the feathers ruffle
As he continues to plead, his whines breaking the silence
Sweet silence, that is all she wished for now
She turned her head to glare at him,
Wishing he would stop talking, but how?
His excuses are weak, his ego overpowering
And she feels the need to do him a favor and report him
For it is illegal in this place to fly without wings
Why should he be any difference?
Why should she bend the rules for him?
But she cannot help but feel that he has what she did
A desire to be bold, to be different
She was the first of them to fly,
To feel what it felt like to be one with the sky
But that was several years ago
No one has asked her how she did it since
Except for him, oh why only him?
Though she believes that he lacks greatly in what he’ll need,
Nonetheless she can’t help but say yes
As she watches hi face fill with glee
He promises rapidly that she won’t regret it
That he’ll be the best
But already she’s regrettnig her decision,
Because he turned out like all the rest
