A Chance To Explore- a poem

Reaching Heights

There are challenges of a young person entering adulthood. Starting out with self confidence and with no fears and intimidation can compare to the flight of a young bird in the sky. This poem is a creative way of looking at the bravery of a little bird. We all go through a challenge with every new adventure of life. Perhaps the confidence of a bird will inspire us to be able to reach heights.

Fly away,

On little wings.

The sky is calling out

For your wings to

Spread and Grow.

Time to leave that

Little Cornered Nest,

For you have outgrown its

Sheltering boundaries

And it has outgrown you.

Where you will go is

Beyond the trees and

Behind the clouds.

Stretch your wings

And take off.

Don't be afraid,

Feathered Beauty,

The Widened air is

All for you.

You were made to live

in such a wide open sky.

And the sky was made

To be explored by

Little birds like you.

Don't look back

To the nest.

Or the old tree

Where you were born.

Those things will

Always be there

Waiting for another bird

To take its place.

But each bird will outgrow

The nest and the tree

Just as you did.

Yet the nest

Will always be the same

The tree will be

Bigger and older.

So, if you wish,

Little bird,

Come back to the tree.

Later,

after you explore

Your new life in the sky,

You can see how the

Other birds have roosted

And then outgrown the nest.

In the sky, as you fly

The tree will

Become the horizon

And be like a border

To your new life.

It will look different

From afar.

Don't let the tree get

In the way as it grows.

The sky is always wider

When you are in it.

As the sky appears

Vast and new

The tree will

Always remain

The same,

Strong and tall

Firm in its roots

Awaiting for

Another Bird

Like you.
