People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct or true. That is how they define reality. But what does it mean to be correct or true? Merely vague concepts....their reality may all be a mirage..... -Itachi Uchiha

I never asked to be here

I'm in an open cage

I wonder why I stay

Wishing there was a way

To fly so far away,

Then I remember there is no door,

The only thing that's in my way... 

Is me....

A fear that lurks deep within,

Afraid to see whats at the end,

What is on the horizon?

Looking at this place and what I have become,

I know my wings are broken,

But I need to take the plunge,

To see if I can fly,

To ride the wind in the open sky,

I'm a bird with no direction...

My wings are completely flawed,

But even if they are....

Maybe after the jump they won't hurt at all.
