Piece by piece, we wither

Scratch by scratch. We dither

Day by day, we rot a little

On the inside, and the outside

List by list, we fumble

Moment by moment, we gamble

Step by step, we learn a little

Only to lose every bit at the end

And, so I ask, why are we Weathered ?

Flocking to the tune of the gathered

Fading away in the daylight

To the thoughts of flying away!

Flying with eclectic dreams

Carving away from society’s self esteem

Scraping away the restraint disorder

Rebellious, but utterly vital

So, just fly away!
