Oh little bird


Oh little bird
flapping your wings
against the tyranny
of people and time

this jail cannot be broken
through hurtful angst
in your wake others shall cry
is that what you want?

Your tears are precious
waste them no more
look how the kids come
joyfully to you

Come sit on my perch
Oh little one
I'll pet you
and take good care

And you'll realize that
the jail is easily broken
when u fill your bosom with love again
and sing the song that brings sunshine

Oh little bird
you are the light of the world
come back, come back
to the world of love

i want to go back into the world of love but something has chained my flight, something is holding my wind and something is not letting me get introduced to a new light!

i feel like the bird in that cage!

@AD...jst follow the poem...the cage will break open

@Shoe Girl...thanks never hurt being told that it reminded someone of Pink Flloyd...which one?

Luscious Sealed Lips said...

I agree with Shoe Girl. Says more than the simplicity it exudes.

Kisses.

Captivity is the antonym of freedom

Reminds me of the poem 'I know why the caged bird sings'. Very intense.

@LSL...thanks...it talks about hurt and how we get caged by it...and how it can lead to negative reactions in our angst to escape it...but that it is in the other direction that freedom lies

@Pesto...and this is self captivity...a boundary set on oneself

@Ki...thanks will look that one up :)

Sweet thoughts :)

Love is one bird that flourishes in bondage :) nothing like obstacles n angst to increase the love ppl feel :)
