bird keeper. | a poem.

You know

Exactly who you are

And make

No apologies.

You have a

Streak of rebellion

In you

That will not

Be boxed in.

You are


Rooted, and


You won’t

be told

Who you are.

You are not

Easily intimidated

But instead

Stand sure

In your own strength.

And you make

A safe space,

A haven

For a caged bird

To find her voice,

Her thoughts,

Her beliefs,

A strength of her own.

It loves her well.

It sees her fully.

It gives room

For her to see herself

And is a both

A flight deck

And a landing strip

From which

She will take flight

And always

Return home.
