"Sometimes what sets you apart can feel like a burden. But it's not. A lot of the time, it's what makes you great." -Emma Stone


I've never wanted to be
thin white cotton
until today
when you lifted
your arms to stretch
and I couldn't
help but wonder
how wide
your wingspan would be
and how close
you could get to the sun
with those
shoulders of yours.

Such clear imagery; it's amazing how you converted such a simple thing into a poem, and a contest-winning one at that, congratulations!

You write with clear elegance on things that may seem insignificant to many people. I think you're a talented writer. And I'm a fan of your poetry. I love the image here. And the title too.
