She Too Won’t Go

What a beautiful bird

Such vibrant feathers 

And a melodious song 

From her heart’s desires

 

But too afraid to fly 

She has seen the other birds

Fall to their graves

And now she is afraid to fall

 

So afraid to fall

She could never soar

 

Though she dreams of the breeze

Through her feathers 

Though she dreams of the view from below

The flightless tell her not to go

 

She sits in her tree

Looking at the birds that soar

Dreaming of what could be 

Saying

Oh how I wish that could be me

 

If she were to leap 

She’d surely fall

 

So she will never feel the breeze 

Through her feathers 

And she'll never see the view from below

She too won’t go.
