I rose above the clouds in an instance of triumph, basking in the sound of pure honor and majesty. It all surrounded me in one moment of glory. Wings made of light and wind emerged from my back, setting me free, and my eyes saw the world below. I could see everything.

When asked if it was worth it, I answered, but there was no sound and as I write this my hand falls to pieces in the resistance of what was.
