The Bird Who Refused To Fly – Part 4/13

“Keep your head up straight now
We are off to see
The wise owl,” said the mother
“Who perches on that tree
He will be your teacher
Teach you how to fly
Cast aside your fears
So you can touch the sky”

“But what if I don’t want to”
Pleaded the little bird
“Why do we have to do this?
It just seems absurd
What if I was born to
Sit and sing and sigh?
God mustn’t have made me
To spread my wings and fly”

“Enough of your talking”
The mother cut her short
“Enough of your answers
Remarks and quick retorts
Look at all your brothers
They are just like you
God made you like He made them
Don’t you get it too?”

This time it was clear
The little bird was not to win
The meeting was all set up
No point in arguin’
She dropped her shoulders thinking
Might just give it a try
If nothing comes out of it
At worst, she’d learn to fly

  1. Little bird submitted
    to planned conformity
    but mama didn’t know of birdie’s
    wing deformity

    He hovered for a sec
    before plunging from the sky
    his useless wings still flapping
    as he gave a final cry.
    (Heehee sorry, couldn’t resist! 😂)
