keep beating those wings
and dash toward the beautifully blended horizon.
Let it pull you in with its pastel-painted promises
but keep an open eye on the ever present pollution too
for it silently surrounds you, working to smoke you out
to choke you out: all of you
who dare to dream
who dare to bring
the fair future to all of us
who have deserved nothing less
since the advent of our existence.
Flutter fast and far
and rest on the fingertips of those
whose young minds believed in you from the get go
bringing you to fruition,
your pearlescent perfection.
