Earthbound Birds

these birds
have wings,
but cannot fly,
my friend says
that she is
too sly,
I do not
know what
there might be

held on
the ground,
a scene
so epic,
you know
there is an
these birds
are earthbound,
and may
never fly again

my wings
are never
found or seen,
there have been
to learn
where they
might hide

gravity seems
like a law,
you cannot fly,
you cannot know,
it holds us down,
because the sky
is not our home,
we are just
earthbound things
