First the grated knife

sliced our umbilical union

I stumbled blind from

your guiding wing


Escaping the bosom

of selfish caution

I then let the sharp blade

of adulthood wound me further


Hurt and with

feathered span unfurled

I broke my beak

on pebbles of inexperience


My innate calling

to capture the skies

My guiding voice

a sound reminiscent of you


This eagle will fly

soar the open heavens

My mind free

the world my range
