    I love this poem. I'm only 16, but this is exactly the reason I started writing. For perfect poems like this. They evoke emotions.

    'I have to stop thinking of life as an already broken-winged bird, a flock of them that cannot and should not try to fly. I'm nineteen. It's okay to have dreams.'
