You are the largest of all birds,
and as an adult, you grow up to two metres,
which is more than six feet,
even taller than a tall human.
The one bane in your structure,
is that, unlike your feathered lot,
you cannot fly and soar,
high above in the sky.
But you more than make up for it,
by being a very fast runner.
sometimes you run,
at a breath-taking fifty miles per hour.
You weigh more than a hundred kilograms,
which is why you are unable to fly.
Oh, my huge one, tell me something,
do you sometimes wish you were different?
You are an omnivore,
and eat small insects and plants.
You also eat leaves, grass and seeds,
and sometimes small reptiles and mammals.
Trying to harm you is dangerous,
for you have very powerful legs,
and one kick from with your leg,
is enough to kill a fully grown human.
You are mostly found in Africa.
But you are farmed all over the world,
for your tasty meat,
and valuable skin and feather.
You are not hunted much,
because of your massive size,
the only animals that dare to prey on you,
are the ferocious lions and Cheetahs.
It is indeed a pity,
that among all the birds,
you are the odd man out,
and cannot fly in the sky.
