I am just a little bird
Standing on this shore
Trying to decide if I
Should fly away once more,
The world out there is big and wide
Dare I take a chance?
To stay behind is to live a life,
Void of all romance,
And since I have these wings attached,
I am not anchored here,
So with a stretch, a flap, a leap,
I’m off into the air!
Who knows what I will find when I
Land on that distant shore,
But I must go I feel it
In my wings, my heart, my soul!
