The Gamble

It's a gamble:
Risk a leap of faith
or stay safe,
secure in the nest
lined with bright bits
of cloth and paper
and glittery accents
that sparkle and shine
in the midday sun
and glow
in the moonlight.
A retreat of your own making:
beautiful as it is,
still a virtual prison,
making it impossible
to spread your wings,
fly free
and embrace destiny.
