Birds in a Cage

Updated on April 17, 2017

Bird - symbol of freedom. It is created to be free but people lock her into shackles. Such people are not free in their soul. They are an eyesore of humanity. Hoping to find pleasure they are watching the beauty of birds and listening to them singing but they don’t hear or see that the birds don’t create the same tune and do not shine with same glow as they were once free.

Many are free with the body but their soul is riveted by earthly things. They live in freedom but they aren't free.

Man is sinful creature and when he does a bad deed, his freedom ends! That man becomes guilty and he must go to prison by man's laws. And this is how it’s supposed to be. But who are you to judge the birds - divine beings that throughout the day glorify God! Do you think you're bigger than they are? Truly, I tell you! Every one of us is smaller from that being. We only remember Him in our distress, when we sink to the bottom but in the happiness we don't call him. Day passes without mentioning His name. Are we bigger and better than celestial birds then? People who do not believe in God will say: "it's just a bird. This bird is a stupid creature. It does not understand anything." And scientists will add: Animals don't have soul and they don't have the ability to think. I claim that every living thing has a soul - the spirit of our Lord that He gave us. And we are created to respect the freedom and magnify His glory but we have forgotten that. A free man hears music of freedom and he doesn't seek how to catch, imprison and force it to stay with him. He listens to the sounds and finds meaning in every note of that song. Listening to the song of birds, man surrenders to freedom. He raises his hands to the sky and gives thanks to God for this gift. In the end, remember that putting the bird in a cage is a big sin. By taking freedom of living being you are breaking down your freedom too.

Birds in a Cage

They are singing a sad song
heavenly birds in a cage
Do you hear a melody tonight?
Can you hear? Listen quietly! Birds die!

Are you really going to throw them in shackles?
Do you know that her wings will break?
Why do you want to extinguish little spark of freedom?
Birds do not belong in a cage.

Oh how sweet and lovely freedom is
as sweet ruddy grapes of extensive vineyards
as a pearl that shines in your palm,
Freedom is a glow that goes out in the dark.

      You have a sweet, empathic soul. I feed them outside and love to see them free.
