Life Suspended

Written by: ahellas Alixopulos

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?
