Free as a Bird: A Poem

We gave you wings so you’d be free as a bird,

Now fly far from here, fly strong;

We gave you a voice so you might speak your mind,

Now sing to the sky, sing long.

We gave you a heart so you’d explode with your love,

They filled it with lead, sing long;

We gave you a life so they’d take it away,

Free as a bird now, fly strong.

  1. Mikki, I really like this. Especially so since I read that you are a “geeky kid;” this could have easily been written by a parent who was sending off their son/daughter to college. Well done.

    1. Thank you so much! I don’t know much about parenting, but that is the sort of feel I was going for. I’m so glad that you appreciate this! Thanks for stopping by!
