artificial
prosthetic hands are sympathetic
but i'll put an end to this
i can't keep fighting, do i have to keep fighting
stop breathing
it's not the same
because i was just a kid
it does not do to dwell on dreams
acceptance takes you further than you ever thought you'd go
when you chase the ghosts of things that could have been
like a father who was never there at all
i was a boy
now i'm a plane
but i can't keep this holding pattern anymore

    General CommentThat amazing comparison at the beginning to artificial, prosthetic hands...
    It's so melancholy. So poetic.

    Read the Great Gatsby. Gatsby had an "endless capacity for hope" and chased dreams of his youth. Those dreams eventually led to his death.

    General Commentincidentally, dumbledore says to harry "it does not do to dwell on dreams" when he catches him staring into the mirror or erised in harry potter & the sorcerer's stone. he was an orphan too. hmm.
