Caged Bird


Wings pinned by invisible pegs
Bound in fetterless chains
Through the window within
I see the azure sky
Virgin, beckoning at me invitingly
I imagine my wings unhindered
Free to clap carefreely
They would patter on aerial soil
Like infantile limbs learning to crawl
Slowly at first
Then gathering momentum
It will increase in speed
Faster, soaring father and beyond
The earth’s celing
To a clime consummated by stars
Which would my efforts crown
I see…
A prison without walls
Incarcerated by
Of failures inevitable
