Fly now oh little birdie

For there is no place for you here

You had a broken wing

Other birdies told you

You needed to heal

So you stopped, you stayed

You trusted that the other, older, birdies knew

Many tears you shed as you realized

You never did have a broken wing

All along you could have flown

If only you trusted in your own wings

The other older birdies were surprised

They thought you were weak and hurt

But now, your wings, they are stronger than ever

And as you fly, fly, fly away

Into the infinite bliss of the sunshine

You know you will never again

Doubt the strength of your own wings.
