If one was to tell a bird to not sing, would it really stop, listen and take wing?
(Poem and message inspired by today's prompt: motivation. Kind of different to my latest work, but fun to write and I hope you enjoy!)

Spirited

If one was to tell a bird to not sing,

If one was to tell a bird to not sing, would it really stop, listen and take wing?

It's beautiful voice, shining glory,

It's beautiful voice, shining glory, not to sing would be the end of its story.

If one was to tell a butterfly not to flutter,

If one was to tell a butterfly not to flutter, cutting through the air like a knife in butter.

Would it stop and simply fly instead

Would it stop and simply fly instead, and leave its beauty to be unsaid?

If one was to tell a flower not to bloom,

If one was to tell a flower not to bloom, would it stop in its mission to end all gloom?

It's blend of colors, so bright and true,

It's blend of colors, so bright and true, would it really stop for me or for you?

So if one was to tell you to be mute or not speak,

So if one was to tell you to be mute or not speak, why must you suffer silently and be weak?

A simple word or two is all it would take:

A simple word or two is all it would take: "I am human and you won't see me break."

... So the main message in this is: you are in control of you. No-one can stop beautiful things in life, such as flowers blooming, birds tweeting and butterflies fluttering.

Therefore, no-one has the power to stop you. You are not weak. You are strong and amazing. Most of all, you're you! :D

That's Iqra... OUT.
