Freedom to fly

anonymous person pointing finger at bird
A bird trains its chick to fly , 
But never asks it to return 
As it has a journey to strive.

Why do we bind them
and have them burden expectations
Why do we tell them they are free 
yet they have a limited sky

Its in our duty to care to teach them to fly
Its our reason to live not our dreams unfulfilled

Take a step 
For their happiness 
See them achieve flight
no one has ever before sight
see them live with heart 
see them make their own path

They are yours forever 
cherish the bond like the 
pearl that finds a place worthwhile.

Let them make a new start 
for the stage we have set
Let them act with feelings
Not puppet with strings

Freedom is greatest gift of mankind
Yet is always a fight to deny on freedom that is a right
