Bird in hand

They say a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. So, should I cage myself with you? There’s too much risk in it.

On the other hand, if I let you free, is it not risky too?

Am I going to take a chance? 

I do not want attitudes to chain me, neither that of others nor mine. I do not want to forfeit my freedom, for I know if I fly along with you towards those birds hidden in the bush, I’ll set myself free. I’ll also let you earn a chance, promising to set you free as time flies along.


‘A bird in hand is worth two in the bush’ is an idiomatic expression denoting the present comfort and staying away from risks that seem unnecessary.

There are a few of my kind who are determined to experience the hardships or pain even if ‘the experienced’ mark it a hard path. What’ll happen to our learning curve, and how will we know what’s unnecessary to our lives if we stop taking those risks, be it love, career, or any fun adventure?

Most often, I have a strong opinion that the risk of not risking is itself a greater risk. What’s your thought?
