Hop Little Bird

Hop little bird
Close to the edge
Allow the claw to taste freedom
Closer now

Teetering on the edge
She wills herself to jump
Into a pool of uncertainty

Lingering
Clouded with doubt
HOP LITTLE BIRD!!!!
JUMP!!

Not today
She decides
Creeping back into the nest
Disgusted with her fear
She hears herself bellow aloud
Jump little bird!!

One by one
The others jump

She never does!

About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website, www.write2survive.com, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)

    The ending is necessary. A good lesson in life I think. Suppose it’s better that way…just DON’T JUMP. Awesome.
