Poem~ The Bird Who Couldn’t Fly

 

by Rebecca Bagley

You couldn’t understand,
even if you tried,
the reason that she cries at night,
the reason she tries to hide.

Don’t try to come close,
she’ll just push you away,
there’s something that you don’t know,
words she couldn’t say.

She tries with all her might,
to be herself around her friends,
but something doesn’t feel right,
a broken heart that could not mend.

She pretends that she’s strong,
a tough outer shell,
but there’s always something wrong,
she’s trapped in her Hell.

She wants to speak,
to tell you all the truth,
but she is way too weak,
broken without any glue.

Painfully shy;
the bird that couldn’t fly.
Dying on the inside;
a body without a mind.

Maybe if you took the time,
find the person she tries to be.
Maybe if you looked inside,
you’d realize she is me.
