The wilderness
finally reaches into my skull
& my arms stick out
like branches.

I am boiling my brain
to make it keep
until spring
& you are the fire
beneath.

I don't fear the cold
it will contrast me
through,
& I don't fear the dark,
it will blanket.

Life will end
& I used to fret,
(silent and nauseous)
but what is the use
in just waiting to wither?

I am replacing my legs
with feathers.
I am twisting my torso
for better suspension.
I am transposing into something new
& I am born from the ashes
of old.

I feel the breath
of the future, but I see
only the now,
slowly hiding its secrets
& preparing for
hibernation.

There are others like me,
I finally found them.
Their bodies are nervous
& wild.
It is way past midnight, and I can't stop the words from coming.

Very cool, I liked this one.
I could understand about someone that have quitted life and then received some inspiration...
Ah... something like that, xD.

Soon I realised, based on past events that happened with you.
And that's it! You can fly, everyone can!

I think so too. I am succeeding in doing things I never thought possible at the moment. Little things, but important ones. I hope you are too.

Yeah, I'm getting to it too!
And don't worry, the little things are the most important.
