No one sees how the little bird has to build its nest.

Sticks.

Twigs.

Leaves.

Struggles.

Back-breaking pain.

Night.

Day.

Work.

Always work.

Pain.

So much pain.

Rest.

Work.

Rest.

Work.

Pain.

Pain.

Pain.

Pain.

The bird is numb.

The bird is tired.

The bird is dead.

No one sees how the little bird has to build its nest.

They don’t watch it die for the safety of its children.

But they. Don’t. Care.
