I'm incredibly bad at these.
This is a poem I wrote with a prompt


Fly away, 
Silently singing
Freedom searching 
Take flight on wings 
Made of stardust and cloud
Escape the dirty, taunting man
Let your aspirations be your guide into the unknown 
Let your sorrow keep you adrift 
Oh, sweet sparrow, whose voice haunts my soul 
Why do you touch the ground 
When you could live amongst clouds instead?
Are humans more fun to watch
Are they more fun to tease?
With their heads in the clouds 
And meager thoughts flying about
Like deformed children
They grow into monsters 
And they take
Never giving 
Are you disgusted by our useless 
The fire or touching the sun
The lips pressed to windows
Eyes searching for answers 
Where there are no questions
 Yes, we must seem so silly to you
And cruel as well
Is it wrong to you that we blind you 
And make you sing?
I’m sure you must not mind much, 
For it takes a willing subject to be caught 
By unskilled men’s hands
But sparrow 
If I could
I’d leave with you 
And leave this disserted  no mans land
To forever be in your grace
Goodbye until we meet again
I will always look to you as a friend
