Poetry for kids 2 - Predicament

Updated on December 14, 2011

Predicament

 There's no ground out there

for me to walk on

Mama, there's no ground out there

to walk on

How am I supposed to

move forward?

 Just spread your wings

and fly

she replied

 You know I can not fly

and there's no ground

out there

for me to walk on

How am I supposed to

move forward?

 She said

Take it by sea

and swim to

your destiny

 Um, I don't know

how to swim

was my reply

She said,

Uh,oh,

I should have taught you that

shouldn't I?

      lovely sentiments conveyed here...and this momma did want her little one to find her 'wings' but just not to have them take her too far away...and the momma can't teach EVERYTHING she wishes she could have...some things like swimming in the ocean of life we must learn on our own...well done!!!
