Readers’ Corner: Bird’s Nest

I looked up into the sky with my wings closed. The sun was shining in my eyes. I was afraid to be alone. My mother smiled at me as I lay in the nest quietly. She noticed that I was afraid and said, “If you want to grow up, you‘d better think about your future with a smile and not worry about your past.” I couldn’t give up thinking about it. Time passes like a cloud floating in the blue sky. I know I must give up the past. Then my mother gave me a gentle smile because I might have found my own way. Finally, I spread my wings and left the nest. I was so excited, and I was happy to look at the blue sky so closely. Nobody knows what will happen in my life, but I will start toward my future with my own wings.  (149 words)
