I write what I feel…

Don’t Give Up

Edited

So many birds have missing feet,

Misshapen claws, fused into a lump, a clump…

Crippled… but no one cares.

They hop, hop, hop from here to there,

Pecking at the ground ~~

It’s all about survival!

I see the same ones day after day

But it’s the first few days post injury that count

The brave struggle – that’s what it’s about,

Persistence despite the pain

Until it becomes a part of existence

So one can’t remember how it was before

And one feels normal again.
