You can't take this girl 

away from the water, for surely

she will drown.

You can't expect her not

to venture deep into the

forest, for surely she

will become bored.

You can't remove her from

nature, for surely she

will die...a slow death.

You can't build her a home

not surrounded by trees,

plants and flowers, for

surely she will suffocate.

You can't put her in a 

cage, for she is too wild and free.

You can't clip her wings,

she'll grow them back

and fly away.
