Clumsy Little Bird

I believe I am clumsy

A baby bird


Tripping falling

Alone in the world

Hosting my



I shriek them

In my little voice

My problems

My issues

My thoughts

As an open book

None press their ear to


I am bare

To the world


And cold


Each close friendship

Warmed to the heart

Is dropped

Out of my mind-nest


My little wings

Can only hold

The weight

Of the wind

Which even I

Fall through

Towards the ground


I flap my wings

Hitting everything around me


On my little legs

I bump around

As a voice above me says

“She’s perfect”
