don't be afraid <3

don't be afraid, little one.

oh, how fragile and special you are,

such a little young bird,

wide eyed,


new to the wide, gaping jaws of our universe.

be strong, little one.

chin up,

no time to rest

for the stars continue to sing

and the sky is where your wings can let you soar


my little one.

my little darling birdie,

nearly grown.

my eagle

or will you be the boldest coloured flamingo,

a bright eyed-macaw

or the loudest, funniest kookaburra?

soon you'll soar my little wide-eyed birdie,

unless you're an emu, then you'll win gold for your games of chasey

but no matter the sparkle in your eye

the screech or twitter of your songs,

or even the print of your claws,

you are

and always will be

mine <3



Author's Note: You are strong, brave, kind, beautiful and here! Take a checkpoint, run wild and soar for a day.

Take time to do what you will forever do better than anyone else.

Being YOU.
