written by Brad Kaaya, from the play "Othello" by William Shakespeare
Hugo: All my life I always wanted to fly. I always wanted to live like a hawk. I know you're not supposed to be jealous of anything, but to take flight...to soar above everything and everyone...now that's living. But a hawk is no good around normal birds. It can't fit in. Even though all the other birds probably want to be hawks, they hate them for what they can't be. Proud. Powerful. Determined. ...Dark. Odin is a hawk. He soars above us. He can fly. One of these days...everyone's going to pay attention to me. Because I'm gonna fly too.
