Mother Bird

For the time has come,

I am to leave the nest that once

was created by Mother Bird.

 

Ready to take on the world

And unaware of what is to come.

I know nothing.

 

Even my love for travel

could not prepare me for this

New adventure.

 

I am to study my one true love.

Biology.

 

I am to use this passion to help

The world evolve into a better

Version of itself.

 

I am to travel the world,

Seeking health, happiness,

And cure for the sick and hopeless.

 

To seek a brighter day

for those lost in the dark.

I am their light in shining armour.

 

I am to love and smile

For the opportunities in my path.

For the gift of intelligence in my brain.

For the gift of kindness in my heart.

 

And I am to be grateful

Because I know I would

Be flightless without

Mother Bird’s nurtured nest.
