The Caged One🦅

A bird so free,
Flies and leaps,
Dipping his wings,
In the orange rays,
Dares to travel endless sky,
Feeling hearty and peace.

Gloomy and sad,
Is what the caged one feels,
Through his narrow cage,
He seldom stalks,
His friend out free,
He misses freedom you see.

Free bird feels the cool winds,
Making him think,
About his next summer bliss,
He flies through,
The sighing trees and soft breeze,
He names the sky his home!

The caged one tries to sing,
It comes out as a painful shrill,
His wings clipped and feet tied,
His painful tune,
Is heard in the distant hill,
He sings asking for freedom still.

The Free one is happy,
Living his own life,
But the Caged one,
Stands on the grave of his dreams,
Free one dies with peace,
But caged one gets a miserable cease!

-Ava Tripathy.

“No bird in a cage ever speaks. What is there to say? The sky is everywhere, churning above its head, blue and endless, calling out to it. But the caged bird can’t answer anything except ‘I cannot’.”

~ Sonya Hartnett

    1. Some people kill birds through hunting , not because they are hungary, but for amusement . Just , relax and allow divine consciousness to handle all with wisdom , love and light …
      If people would allow animals to live freely and peacefully , they would be more blessed …

  2. With each poem you are proving yourself a better than the last one.
    Really feeling proud to read your poems, which are so philosophical.
    Further my little Ava, I have purchased your first book ” SPE FOR VITA- A HOPE FOR LIFE”,which you have recently lunched. Actually it gives me immense pleasure to own such a marvellous piece having 50 poems.
    Keep it up.
    My blessings and best wishes.
