Broke away
From the orbit
Steering into outer space
Bruised a knee
Grazed some skin.
Walked on
Through the web
Reached a dead end
Hammered away
Found no way
To the origin
Of the big bang
Sought a new arc,
A different ellipse
Around the sun
Struggling to get away
From the black hole
Catching up at the tail,
Staring at the fiery sun
As it melts down my wings
But can’t ebb my desire,
A need to fly untamed
Unshackled from all chains.
I’m broken and torn
But not dead and buried
Searching for a path
To live my creed.
