"Life sucks. A lot. But you just have to keep on going. No matter what happens. You can never ever give up. You just have to roll with the punches, go with the flow, and always try your best to keep on going <3"

Maybe I should listen
To your ever soft words
Oh my little bird.
Maybe I should try harder to be like you.
Maybe its time that I understand
That things aren’t the way they seem.
Oh my little bird.

Maybe I should spread my wings like you do.
Maybe I should fly away like you do.
Maybe I should learn how to sing my song a little better
Oh my little bird.

And so my little bird
Its time you know my little bird
That its time
For me
To let you fly free
Little bird.
And you may come home anytime.
And I will come back to you.
For it is time
For me to fly away too.

As i grow as a person i am realizing how different i am. This poem for me is about how i need to learn how to love my self for who i am and not try to be like everyone else. I need to learn to fly away from people who can't accept me for who i am.i need to fly away from my insecurities.
