I believed them when they told me that I couldn’t fly.
They would mock me and I would cry.
I would stretch my wings and look at them after my tears would dry.
But one day, I fell off a branch;
And I almost thought I’d die.
But then my wings flapped in tandem with my heartbeat,
And I soared up high;
Higher than all the others.
I looked down and realised
That in the end, all it took for me to fly was a single try.
