Outspread Wings

Poem By Macy (Nina) Dvirnak

I hear the excitement,
I see the faces,
Of all my family

Held dear to my heart!

Alas! –
This meeting be,
Rather a parting-

Of both tears of sorrow
And of Joy.

Amidst the hustle,
Through the bustle,

My mind,
It rests on one thing-

I must let go
Of Childhood,
For to this last branch,
Do I so tightly cling!

I know I must leave
My nest,
Although in this comfort Zone,
I could happily rest.

As I cling to the Branch,
Take my stand-
Someone is beside me!

She has stood with me
Day and night,


Tended to my every need..

She has kept me in the nest-
She has taught me right,


Has prepared me,
With all of her might.

So, she in the nest,
And I on my branch,
So high-

I look at her,
Returning a message
Of Love
That never dies-


As she returns my gaze,
With loving and anxious eyes,

I spread my wings,


To her, say I-

“Mamma, I am ready to fly! ”

And with that,
I let go of the branch-

I soar through the sky!

I am gliding towards God’s calling
Upon my life-

And as I look back
Towards my proud mother,

My tail feathers wave

Baby's Breath

Doubt ye not,
The power of words,

For they can build up,

Certain Death

There are many things in life,
That a person may find-


However, dear friend-

Faulty Blame

Point not your fingers at someone else,
For the blame really lies within yourself.

Do not make up a good excuse,

It All Starts Here ≪3.

The choices you make today
Will effect you tomorrow.


Common Sense, Or Not So Common?

If you possess,
An ignorant ear,
You will also possess,
Stumbling feet.
