30 Poems in 30 Days #10 – As I Bleed

As I bleed
I am reminded
I am human
Flying into the sun
Wax wings melting

Where I came from
To there I will return
My mortality is certain
Nothing can be done
I am reminded

Certainty of my invincibility
Fades into a shallow pool
As the crimson tide
Of my own weakness
Rolls from me

In all its fury
I am reminded
