Don't look at my insecurities
I hide them behind my winged fassad
Feathers of display
Meant to distract you

Look elsewhere
To your imagination painted on my feathers
Paint me whatever color you'd like
Just don't trim my wing

Look at my wing, not my eyes
Feed me and sing to me
Pet my head and touch my beak
but don't stare into my soul

Just give me some time
Time to heal
Leave me be for a moment
That I may not lay here forever

It's okay to hurt
To be still
To have a secret place
To be safe

And someday
I'll fly away from this portrait
and some day
You will too

You'll fly
Fly Away
Slowly, but surely
from this portrait of moment
