soar (or not)
How much power is there, in a word?
If I say it out loud, will this sparrow head for the sky?
If I startle him, he will leap and fly,
but flying is different from soaring.
It’s a subtle difference, but it’s there.
There’s a little bit of a glide involved,
a little less climb, a little more riding the wind.
Maybe there’s a little letting go of the fear,
or the inexperience,
that keeps him grounded.
Either way, simply saying it won’t change a thing.
When that bird is good and ready,
he will spread those wings.
If not today, then tomorrow, or the next.
Deep down he knows nothing else
