Challenged in nature
Weak
Perched on a ledge
Unable to fly
Damaged feathers
A wounded wing
Unable to balance

Perched on a ledge
Wishing to soar
Wishing to leave
This place
This ledge

Limited movement
Exposed to the environment
Predators lurking all around
Waiting for the opportune moment to
Conquer
Capture
Consume
Devour

Perched on a ledge
Unable to fly
Damaged feathers
A wounded wing
Unable to balance

Perched on a ledge
Broken Sparrow
Seeking to fly
To return home
To its nest
Weak
Unable to fly
Unable to soar

Here comes the rain
Saturating what remains
What is uninjured
Chirping between
The constant patter of raindrops
As if help were within its song

More unwanted attention is drawn
Recognizing the situation
That is ideal for most predators
Seeking an easy prize
Vulnerable
Yet determined
To fly
To soar
To make it home
To its nest

Perseverance is a characteristic of more than just humans
The broken sparrow can attest to this
Not relenting
Not giving in
Not giving up
Seeking and searching
For a way
For an answer
For survival

Life does not always readily
Place those answers obviously at our feet
Yet the broken sparrow continues to
Test
Challenge
Discover
Among the rain and would be predators
Salvation

Perched on a ledge
Unable to fly
Damaged feathers
A wounded wing
Unable to balance

Perched on a ledge
Wishing to soar
Wishing to leave
This place
This ledge

The broken sparrow can attest to this
Not relenting
Not giving in
Not giving up
Seeking and searching
For a way
For an answer
For survival…
