    Down

    Fly, my child 

    They pushed me

    Reluctantly, I flew

    They looked up at me

    Wings flapping, eyes fixed far ahead

    I flew


    Down, dear

    I looked down, bemused

    People had gathered - they knew

    They wanted me down

    Wings fluttering, eyes confused

    I flew


    Bring the chains, we have a flier

    I heard the screams

    Chains whooshing, my options few

    They brought me down

    Wings torn, eyes tired

    I knew


    They had one more flier down

    Struggle I did, blood I drew

    But the Chains long, numbers more

    Now waiting with a chain in hand, 

    Wings gone, eyes down

    I grew
