Grounded

never fly when your wings are clipped
the crazy flight of a broken bird
banging into objects mere inches from the ground

never fly when your brain is clouded
the crazy flight of a blinded bird
bumping into furniture and walls

never fly when your legs are broken
the crazy flight of a crippled bird
limping and dragging and failing
to become airborne

never fly when your stomach is churning
the crazy flight of a nauseous bird
bolting and cramped with unsettled innards

never fly when you are sub par
