To Fly Again

She battled long and hard to save her soul
from those whose only purpose was control
and little by little, in pin-pricks of light
she recollected spirit bright

and in her recollection she recalled
the love of flight that led her to the fall
and wondered what would happen when
she tried to fly just once again
