But I was a bird,
and you should have known
I’d fly away.

I was not made to be caged,
but you can watch me fly.

A lion roars.

I hear it within me,
a steady reverberation
animating my soul.

I am power.

Today is yesterday's tomorrow.

Our moments are collecting,
building a past.

Each second writes the
story we'll read
when tomorrow becomes today.

As you inhale,
I exhale.
We are human,
together in this
breath of life,
moving in this
perfect rhythm.

I fell hard
and my bones shattered like glass.

As I watched my pieces scatter,
I realized that my mistake was
trusting you.

I didn't fall.
You dropped me.
