Favorite Quote:
"To fly is to pick yourself up off the ground with your wings, to soar is to find yourself lost in the sea of stars, and yet there is still farther to see"


Look at me
I am not angel nor bird
The garland upon my scalp
Is not the heavenly halo you heard

The wings that span my back
Consists not of light feathers
But the heavy burdens set
Down hard across my shoulders

My mouth speaks not of song
I wail and plead for help
I stare you down with jeweled eyes
And hope for one brave enough to see me.

Hear me.
Sense me.
Look at me.
For even a fallen angel wishes
To return home.


The author's comments:
There is a boy or girl out there who cries out for help, but is not strong enough to break through the mask they have wore for so many years. This free verse poem is about a girl everyone views as something like an angel, only thickening the wall between her life and the life she wants.
