The Caged Bird


Soaking her wings in the glorious red sky,

Feeling the wind as she flew by.

She dreamed of this moment while in a cage she cried.

The caged bird cries for freedom.

.

She saw the others hop into their trees.

Eating their fruits, feeding with their families.

Alone in a cage, she saw them fly.

The caged bird cried for freedom.

.

She stood by the cage and pushed one day,

Opened her wings and flew away.

Claimed the sky as she screamed to say,

Only caged birds cry for freedom!

.

She flew through the clouds, into the sky.

No one to ever stop her flight.

But still somehow it didn’t suffice.

Asking, do only caged birds cry for freedom?

.

The wind on her face no longer amused her.

the satisfaction of freedom didn’t come any closer.

Thinking to herself why should I fly?

Even free birds cry for freedom.

  1. I loved the last “PUNCH” line, viz “Because even free birds cry for freedom.”
    A classic example of a person’s greed for more.
