Favorite Quote:
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Dr. Seuss

Little bird, don’t fly from the nest
For it is good to be shy
Little bird, don’t speak your mind
That will never get you by

Little bird, don’t dream too wild
Because then they’ll never come true
Little bird, don’t be so independent
The ride is easier with two

Little bird, don’t stop and smell the roses
The destination will be more intriguing
Little bird, don’t talk to them
Or those ideas you’ll end up believing

Little bird, so young, and sweet
But unknowingly a fool
Little bird, unable to explore
Since she’s everyone’s personal mule

Little bird, don’t listen to them
Or your life will pass you by
Little bird, go after your dreams
Spread your wings and fly

The author's comments:
The main idea of this poem is a girl who is always doing what other people tell her, when really, she should be following her own heart because that is what will truly lead her to success in the future. I was inspired to write this poem because I am guilty of being a pushover and not speaking my mind, which I hate. I know however, that I am not the only person who is like this, so this poem is dedicated to everyone out there like this. You're amazing, let the world see it.
