isabelle,
you are nothing but
an injured bird,
losing your way
in a world of uncertainties.

your wings
have been clipped,
by their ignorant words
(not good enough, not good enough)
and you’re grounded:

stuck.

unable to rise
to the light of the sun –
instead you’re alone below,
drowning in the droplets
of their adamant rain.

not good enough,
they whisper once again,
not good enough…
Prompt #9 from #TheMarmaladeTree - I read the lyrics, and saw the phrase 'an injured bird' and it went from there ♥

This is really very lovely! I love some of the common themes I see emerging in your poems, especially this dealing with an Icarus type mindset. :) Also love how you've named your main sort of character, you don't often do that, but I think it gives it greater depth.
