A Single Try

I believed them when they told me that I couldn’t fly.

They would mock me and I would cry.

I would stretch my wings and look at them after my tears would dry.

But one day, I fell off a branch;

And I almost thought I’d die.

But then my wings flapped in tandem with my heartbeat,

And I soared up high;

Higher than all the others.

I looked down and realised

That in the end, all it took for me to fly was a single try.
