Birdy

Birdy, you mustn’t crack and crumble under the slightest pressure.
The world is a cruel place
And the desire to hide away from the pain is normal.

I haven’t the slightest idea what good news to give you;
Except that I love you — truly and deeply.
No one is worthy of your tears, so wipe them away.
Don’t let them flow for any mortal;
Instead, show the world that you won’t be broken.

I know you want to experience the eternal peace and
Melt your physical being into an abyss of nothingness.
But, Birdy, there is no such thing as peace.

You have your nest and when the solitude starts to eat away at you,
Come find me.
I will comfort you. I will mend you where you’ve cracked.
And I will always cheer for you, Birdy,
Enthusiastically waving my pompoms of love.
