Flightless Bird

Starving yourself will not help you finally achieve flight,
Your bones will always be too heavy
And each meal you skip will not help hollow them out
I am sorry you were not born a bird
And that all you got was a hummingbirds heart,
Fluttering
Moving a million miles an hour ad leaving you behind to pick up the pieces
But no matter how many meals you empty your concave stomach of,
You will never be able to puke out your bone marrow
You will never have a birds skeleton
Thank God you are not that breakable
You’re close though
And it terrifies me
