Stretching My Wings

My wings are fully grown now. It pained me, but they are here. I didn’t know it was happening at first as they burst out the backside of my heart and forced their way out between my shoulders. It’s been hard to breathe for awhile – my whole body clenched as I’ve feared all of what’s to come. But now, as I look back, I see what the pain has brought me. I examine their beauty and outstretch them for the world to see, but they are only mine. It won’t be long now, and I will fly.
