Little Bird

We enter this world small and fragile

Taught to glide under another's shadow

Small wings weighted down

Unable to soar on their own

 

Little bird, young sprite

Knowing nothing but to follow and conform

So cautious in your steps

 

Little bird this is not freedom

This is not who you are

You are a trailblazer

One who will carve your own path

 

Caution need be forgotten

In discovering oneself

 

Oh little bird, fall deeply in love

Finding who you want to be

Embrace yourself with wings strong and tight

 

Weave skillfully through the highs and lows

Through the battles won and lost

Remember,

Individuality is well worth the long fight

 

Now rise from the ashes of war, little bird

Stronger than ever before

Rise as a Phoenix, your true form

 

Soar above the clouds now

Wind and freedom under wings

Master of the currents

Strong, fast, confident in your path

 

Phoenix you have found it

Your inner happiness

Rooted in being unique

Such a peaceful radiance

shining from this little bird

This poem is about: 
Me
