There once was an eagle in a nest
Immature and young who thought he knew best
And there were many things he didn't know
Except some doubts and highs and lows.
Sick of the pressure he tried to fly
Didn't know what to do or even why
But he knew within that this was his lot
So he jumped out the nest to give it a shot.
He jumped out the nest only to fall
Though in the air hit a mental wall
"I'll never make it because I'm a zero
Everyone else seems to be the hero".
Just as the eagle was to hit the ground
Two great big wings came and wrapped around
And bought him back to his comfort nest
To win some time and have a rest.
Time to recover and wonder why
Feeling insecure while he had a good cry
But he realized he won't stay long in the nest
So it was time again to stick out his chest.
So he tried again and down he went
But those two big wings were heaven sent
By now his pride was running low
Then he realized he just can fly alone.
He saw the things in his life flash by
The failures the bruises the pain inside
So he looked to the eagle with the two big wings
To try the wisdom and life it brings.
He realized he needed was not the thing
That was born intrinsic from deep within
But what came derived from the wings without
That comes by faith and not by doubt.
Humility and faith seemed to open the door
For the eagle to rise and fly and soar
Things were different so off he went
He left the nest as he was meant.
Through the storms he could strongly fly
With the wisdom and life the big eagle supplied
As a caterpillar turns into a butterfly
He's amazed at how he has changed inside.
There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand: The way of an eagle in the air...(Proverbs 30:18, 19 NKJV)
