She could have just flown away forever.
But even with wings still wounded,
she has chosen to fly back to the land
where she almost disappeared into the night.
For she knows that in so doing,
she helps disinter the stories of horrors
done to so many others,
she helps to stop the coming of the hour
for so many others.
