There once was a little bird
Who just wanted to fly
“Spread your wings and leap,”
The other birds told her,
But the little bird was unable.
The other animals teased her relentlessly
Told her she wasn’t good enough
Still, the little bird held her head high
She practiced every day in order to fly
And did her best to ignore their stares.
Each day the little bird struggled
She played happy to fool the world,
But a smile is not enough
To truly be happy,
She needed to break free.
Without so much as a word,
The little bird took a leap
But surrounding her neck was a noose
And now my little bird is forever gone.
