Fallen

***

I once had wings,
the sky was my home;
But I chose these beings,
these humans from loam;
I wanted to help,
yet they betrayed me;
And with a soundless yelp,
I prayed to be free;
But I have lost the ability to fly,
my wings have disappeared;
Now I can only look at the sky,
wishing I was free as a bird.
