She Flies

She Flies

written by: Gauri Dixit


She flies
With the rest of them
In the sky

Lower than few

Higher than few

They look up
They try
To reach her
They follow
There must be admiration in their eyes
I feel so
But I can’t be sure
They are too far
For me to see
All I see is their battle scars

All I can think about is wings
Fluttering, gliding, fighting, wounded

When she can not fly
Will they leave her alone on the ground to die
Or will they find a burial ground for her in her beloved sky
