She is a happy bird;
She is free, she is limitless.
Breaking away from the cages of deceiving protection,
She chose to raise high against all the odds.
She was well-fed, she was much loved,
She was caressed and hailed as a delicate beauty.
Yet she chose to go to faraway places- unknown and unheard,
Leaving behind her, an endless trail of inhibitions and dashed hopes.
Life was meant to surprise, challenge and strengthen her;
All she had to do was wake up from a cozy slumber of years.
The vast open skies, the green covers, and the dark clouds - everything seemed to inspire her,
Nothing could ever thwart her burning desire.
Her strong willed heart and her relentless wings promised her a life of opportunity, a life of joy, a life of purpose;
Every night she came home to her little nest – sometimes broken, sometimes with renewed vigor.
There were going to be sunshine days and the rough storms,
Yet the truth lay bare for her to see – she would make a place for herself sooner or later.
