Today I Am A Sparrow

By Marie Allred - February 09, 2018


Today, I am a broken-winged sparrow,

Barreling at breakneck speed

Toward no discernible target.

Catapulted off course by a snag in my side,

Unable to breathe for even a moment

I am aching against the aerodynamics,

Destroying my already injured wing

And rapidly unraveling my perfect flight.

I am choked where most birds would sing

I am aching

Because I should have control,

And I do not.
