Just a bird in a nest,

that’s never taken flight,

too afraid to try

so why even fight?



If you jump out,

you’ll fall far downward

and then you’ll be dead,

so you stay a coward.



Whether you think you’re a winner or loser,

you’ll always be right,

so again you think-

why even fight?



You silently watch,

as your nest-mates jump out,

and they pump their wings hard

without a single doubt.



So stop being the bird

in the little, comfy nest.

Go out and take chances

because life is just a test.
