The Eagle Within – Christmas and Holiday Wishes to You All

The Eagle Within

In a barn somewhere there was a birth
This baby bird cracked the shell and started life

He was born into a chicken farm
He walked with the chickens
He ate with the chickens
He slept with the chickens

But he never believed he belonged
He always thought there was something more

One day he saw a bird flying high above the farm
It was the most beautiful bird he had ever seen
He could not take his eyes off this bird
As i
t soared off across the field

He continued to walk with the chickens
Eat with the chickens
And sleep with the chickens
But he never forgot the site he saw that day

One day he found himself on the top of the barn
He had made his journey all the way to the top
From here he could see all the chickens down below

He looked out over the field
And he knew that this day may never come again

He stared out over the landscape
And he made his decision
He realized that this was the moment he was waiting for his whole life

He closed his eyes tight and he jumped
He launched himself out as far as he could

As he fell towards the ground his wings automatically opened
And he took flight!

All the chickens below caused a stir watching him
He swooped down over the crowd
And soared back up high above the barn

There was much commotion as the chickens watched from the ground
He made one last lap above the chicken farm
All settled down and the chickens went back too walking together
To eating together
And to sleeping together

The Eagle continued his journey across the sky and flew off into the sunset

There is an Eagle in each and every one of us!
