The One-Winged Bird

The one-winged bird cannot fly,
Even though she always tries
Very little she may be,
But no one holds her key
The one-winged bird has a dream,
She wants wings that always gleam
One-winged bird has but one rule,
No one will ever take her small jewel
Her only sacred little tool,
She never gave up on her wing,
The treasure that makes her sing
The one-winged bird never cries,
Her tears won't get her to the sky
She'll always carry her mighty shield,
The other birds' taunts never yield
The little one-winged bird spoke,
After many days of being a joke
She stood up, proud and tall,
And flew in front of them all
She had hoped so big and strong,
A second gleaming wing came not long
