Beyond boxes and cages

I wrote this poem last year and thought I’d repost it. I’d also like to dedicate it to Marie, one of my blogger friends, on her birthday which she celebrates today. Have a wonderful birthday Marie. ❤️

little girl

Little girl take care

Don’t let the world tie you down

Shove you in a box


You were born with wings

Spread them out– take to the sky

You were born to fly


Step out of the box

That will confine how you think–

Limit your worldview


Beware of the cage

That barricades your thoughts with bars

Of doubts and fears


Find the pearls within

Shake off the grey shells of doom

You were born to bloom


Hoist out of your own petard…
