I am soul,
I am patient.
I have sworn
to listen.
I remember
the peacetime,
when we traverse
our lives

I will,
I will die


I still live
in the nest.
I am hungry,
my neck stretched.
One more worm
out her mouth,
and I’m running
aground.

I will,
I will fly


How my wings divide,
how long they’ve waited to be tried!
How my mouth is full of sky,
How unlike peacetime.

If I’m ever greedy,
If I’m ever helpless,
I’ve forgotten that many
of my lessons are timeless.
I am human, I am alive
but I’m mostly unkind.
I have sworn to be patient
I have sworn to listen.

I will,
I will learn.
