JONATHAN REALIZES

 

 
      and Jonathan flies to his third world.  
      in this world,  
      there are no limitations like the others,  
      but in this world,  
      Jonathan becomes more than perfect.  
      in the second world, he had told Fletcher  
      that he was not to be a god--  
      in this world,  
      he becomes a god  
      like all the others who had flown there.  
 
      flying free as he had done before--  
      spreading his talent to others  
      and learning things new for himself--  
 
      on a distant shore, Jonathan spots a bird known to him--  
      it is the elder--  
      the elder is lost and excited by sadness.  
      and Jonathan asks him why,  
      his answer--  
 
            “ Jonathan, in this world, no bird ever leads another life,  
            he just dies and is forgotten like every other outcast has been before”  
 
      but why?  
      Jonathan asks in tears.  
      the elder replies  
      “no one knows”  
 
 
      and for days to come Jonathan and the elder flew together  
        
      -- for they were outcast,  
          they were forgotten--
