The Empty Heart
She fought the storm. She fought the rains. She struggled through all the odds. There were winds, strong enough to blow her away. But she didn’t give up. She was determined and strong. She was only concerned about her babies. How could she give up! No! She couldn’t even think of it. The thought of her hungry kids waiting for her kept her moving. With every strong breeze testing her, she became stronger and tougher and held the grain in her beak even tighter. After all that struggle, she reached but only to see her empty nest. The nest once filled with her chirping babies was now empty. The kids she was teaching to fly had now flown away and only thing left behind was their smell lingering around and a mother’s empty heart.
