Birds On The Nest


There was a bird's nest in the tree
There's only a sister to the other three
They barely chirp in glee,
At times, they may but will just end suddenly

When mother and father are away
A commotion will start without any delay
You'll hear brother birds chirp angrily
And little sister bird in a sad melody

Brother birds are always rude
They hurt her whenever they could
Sister bird always get bruised
But telling their parents, she never would

She'll just let out those pains to a cry
With the thoughts of asking 'why? '
She'll say a prayer into the skies
As tears shed down from her eyes

One day, sister bird's patience got exhausted
She finally hit back big brother bird
With tears in her eyes, she yelled
'When you're old, I'll never help you when you're in need! '

Brother bird got angry and shouted
'You want to be killed! '
Furiously she answered
'Then make sure you left me dead! '

Time passed and the little birds have grown,
She decided to fly away from home
Never afraid to live on her own
She's determined to be alone

Through the dark, through the storm
She's able to carry on
Though not having a shoulder to lean on
Sister bird has grown too strong

Through betrayals, through troubles
She stood by her principles
Her fighting spirit is unstoppable
She seemed to be unbreakable

After years of doing her best
She went back to visit that nest
Sister bird has now earned success
While brother birds are still in mess

She's supposed to be happy
Isn't this what she wanted to see?
Brother birds to beg for her mercy?
Yet her heart is filled with pity

She helps them when they're in need
A contradiction to what she has said
She can never be mean as they did
So sister bird just write it as a poem instead
