Fallen Out

In the nest

The soft warm nest

With other fledglings


Falling out of the nest

Before your time

Before your wings are fully ready


Looking around

Looking at all you have never seen

Never even dreamed of

Everything is different from the nest

You call it wrong

Everything is “wrong, wrong, wrong” in your mind

You call it bad

The rest of the world

The land outside the nest


Your land was the nest

But as time passes

In the world

Your wings start to grow

You begin to realize

Life was meant to be this way

There is no “different”

The only different thing

In this world



And now that you have been here

You are different no more
