Sergei Polunin / Сергей Полунин, He Is An Eagle, A Poem
He Is An Eagle

He Is An Eagle

I came across this poem.  Written years ago.  Has nothing to do with Sergei Polunin.  Yet, it seems to have EVERYTHING to do with him…

“‎They are angry with me, because I know what I am.” Said the little eagle. “How do you know that they are angry with you?” “Because, they despise me for wanting to soar, they only want me to peck at the dirt, looking for ants, with them. But I can’t do that. I don’t have chicken feet, I have eagle wings.” “And what is so wrong with having eagle wings and no chicken feet?” Asked the old owl. “I’m not sure, that’s what I’m trying to find out.” “They hate you because you know that you are an eagle and they want you to think you are a chicken so that you will peck at the ground looking for ants and worms, so that you will never know that you are an eagle and always think yourself a chicken. Let them hate you, they will always be chickens, and you will always be an eagle. You must fly. You must soar.” Said the old owl.”
― C. JoyBell C.
