Clipped Wings

Greatness comes early
Children know this secret
Live the true life, true to self
Open and ready to share with all
Proud of knowledge and strengths
Karmic lessons shared with all

But this world is vengeful at times
An insecure soul putting out the light
That burns so naturally through God
Fearful to the core, scared little bird
Teacher becomes the unwilling pupil
Child’s wings clipped so early on

Were your wings clipped early too?
I saw them on the side of the road today
On a walk with my baby
I thought of you , of humankind
If I was not so afraid myself
I would have taken it further
Have we fallen, is that the message?
