A little this – a little that!

The Bird

on November 23, 2011

This is a poem I wrote about being afraid to step out and make a change. I can feel terrified at times when big changes come about, and trying new things is something I have to work on. In truth, we are all made to do great things, change lives, and leave a fingerprint in this world. Are you making a change? Or are you afraid to share yourself with the world? Remember – there is only one person like you on the earth, you are unique! No one could ever take your place. 🙂 Here’s the poem:

The Bird:

So solitary

Lost in a floating mirror

Trapped, grounded

No soul can hear her


The keys

She held on either side

To spread them out

Embrace the sky


Afraid to fall

Gravity’s reluctant slave

Unaware that she was an egret

Built to rise above the waves

Here's a picture I took and edited by a small (tiny) Maryland beach
