My Nest Vs My Life - Poem by justice justce

I am like a flightless bird
Sitting in my nest
Should I go through the pain
In my legs or my chest?

If stay and wait I would never know the feeling of being free
Free to be me

But if I jump
I could fail

I've sat alone in my quiet nest
I thought the pain would fade
Even with all the tough choices I have made
I've let it get to me
Without saying a thing
Before i could never jump
couldn't move
My heart could take no more
I left that nest
I fell
My heart was broken
Along with my body
Now I live for
