Because We Should Be

A man walked and saw a child
She was scaling a tree
He ran to her and said,
Stop, what are you thinking?

She looked at him, smiled
And kept climbing
He started up after her,
What if you don’t make it?

He kept on after her
She climbed as if she were born for it.
He slow to a crawl the higher he got.
Child, please you’ll have nothing to fall back on?

She disappeared through the canopy.
He clung for dear life.
She spread her arms out like wings and soared.
Child, how can this be?

She flew down and sat on a branch near him
He cringed in fear
She spoke
This can be, because I believe?

Who will you choose to follow?
Who will you choose to be?
The one taking flight?
Or the one scared to be?
