The Majestic Duckling


That little duckling

Who didn't turn into a majestic swan,

How did it deal with life,

Did it still cry at its reflection?

Did it still get bullied?

Rejected and isolated by peers

Did it find no mate?

Did he still face ridicule and hate?

Do happy endings mean becoming a swan?

Could an ugly duckling not be happy?

For living its life to the fullest

Doing whatever little ducks do?

Could the reflection instead show

How the duckling lived and loved,

With its neck held high,

Just like the majestic swan.

Could he have a beautiful life,

Sans the pure white plumage?

Does beauty make you majestic,

Or is it courage?
