Be a Bird

I gave you the wind
To carry you on its back
I gave you a pen
So you could write your own life
I gave you wings
So you could soar in the clouds.

But I never gave you a dream.
I’m sure you have plenty.
When you pick a daisy from the filed
Tomorrow,
It’ll be your dream.
Take it with you
And teach it how to fly.
