Life Suspended

Once again a life suspended
to save a grounded fledgling.
Only now the chicklet
weighs more than me, indeed
weighs more than the whole nest!
A life deferred, indeed all dreams,
with less and less time
to be fulfilled.
Now's not the time to be all 
desperate.
accept the weight for now, just
one more testing.
Gently push, without damaging.
How do you save your child when
he cares less about his life than,
you do?

    powerful, raw, you can't the person must save themselfs, if you did manage to save them once, twice etc. you would only be "disempowering them?" they NEED to KNOW they can handle life by "handling it?" (a 7) (if you have a book in print to sell, let me know in a comment section of a poem of mine? I'm posting where to buy them in a blog. I'm trying to get us some sales for the Holidays)Light & Love!
