A Metaphor

Written by: Jeinara Odonio

There was a young bird, served and protected by her mother.

but the little bird wanted to fly..

though her wings were still frail,

the little bird left to see what's there outside her paradise..

-the real world was harsh.

-there is cruelty

-there is pain

-it's treacherous.

-it's hurting her wings.

and the little bird keeps on falling..

but she keeps on trying..

the little bird wont give up

for she knows that one day her wings will be strong enough

to take her far above the blue skies..
