Unable To Fly (Poem)

I was born without wings to fly
Cursed with longing towards our sky
Afraid I’m stuck down here forever
Tasked with plucking up fallen feathers
To bandage knees from failed attempts
Sanguine ploys of returning to air again
My enamored lust is to be more like you
If only God had given me wings too
