I thought I couldn’t do it and
I didn’t. I told myself I wasn’t
Good enough and it came true.
I didn’t take a risk and stayed
Stuck to my couch.
Wishing things were different.
Hoping things would change.
No breaks coming my way.
I saw a bird land on a branch.
He paused, cleaned his feathers and
Flew without a thought.
