Should I, Or Should I Not

There it was atop a branch of velvety green leaves,
A blondish color to hide it amongst the sunset rays.
Suddenly a struggle for life as something moved boldly,
To free itself from it’s entangled tacky shell within.

The rustic orange beak was the first to burst out,
It’s eyes blinded to light as the heart pounded fast.
A moisty head spun around to grasp the world anew,
Only to fear the absentence of a mother gone array.

A northern wind made it’s presence and swayed the tree,
And down came the contents of a home made of straw.
The life of a living thing was now in grave danger,
As a four legged predator eyed a meal for the taking.

A feathered life with three claws kicked in struggle,
As it’s existence waited in a balance for survival.
Should I interfer was a question I soon had to answer,
While the drama acted out before my very own eyes.
