A poem on birds.

Updated on July 16, 2013

Wish I could fly again.

Days that passed away,

When I used to fly,

Fly high in the sky.


Roaming in the blue,

My green feathers glowed,

Feeling the fresh breeze,

And nature's sweet sounds.


But then on one day,

My puny feathers caught,

In a vicious trap.

Shut in this cage,

Today I can only weep.


Was my beauty a curse?

Was this supposed to be?

The colorful world of mine,

Was now too blurry to see.


Life's a prison now,

With no meaning at all,

Seeking for a meaning,

And feeding on the packaged foods,

My zest has vapoured overall.


Still in me,

A deep desire lies,

To break this little world,

And jump into mine,

Wish I could fly again.

      Nice thoughts well expressed. Sometimes humans feel caged, too, and many literally are, while others are far from there normal haunts and paths.

      Dear Sereseus, This is deeply poignant and expresses what a bird must feel when its freedom has been taken. I cannot even begin to imagine the sadness I would feel if I could fly and someone put me in a cage where I could not soar. Beautiful poem and so true.

      Voted up. This is a wonderful piece that speaks for the birds that can not speak for themselves. It is a sad fact that their beauty is often a curse to them, this was particularly true in the past. Thank you for sharing .

      Voted up and beautiful. Although it is sad and birds deserve to be free people do like to cage them. Delightful poem though and great pics. Passing this on.

      Such sadness for creatures that were meant to fly. Beauty has been their curse.
