Pretty Bird

Pretty bird.

Enchanted by the world.

Kept in her nest, fed by her parents.

Beautiful wings.

Beautiful songs.

Pretty bird.

Enchanted by the world.

But never leaves home.

Never can.

She hasn’t learned yet.

Her parents won’t let her leave the nest.

Pretty bird.

Enchanted by the world.

Learns to fly.

Wants to spread her wings.

And say goodbye to her former self.

Still she never leaves the nest.

Pretty bird.

Enchanted by the world.

Says goodbye.

Flies away.

Possibly returning someday.

Possibly never returning to the nest.

It doesn’t matter.

She finally got her wish.

She finally saw the world.

She spread her wings and flew.

She soared above the clouds.

Her mom swears she saw a glimpse of her one night, when the stars shine bright.

Her dad could hear her sing sweet melodies, when the sun shines.

Bye bye Pretty Bird.

Enjoy the world.
