A Caged Bird


I am like a caged bird
that doesn't ever get tired
to find the way to fly
in the lovely blue sky.

I will fly, float and run
in the deep blue ocean.
I will sing when I roam;
Then I will come back home.

    Simple but meaningful, short in size though bears a long imagination and at last backs to patriotism. Very good, Mr. Abubakar, the poet A++ (Report) Reply

    Best to be a dreamer in that situation. I remember seeing a wild bird caged and battering its body against the bars until its spirit was broken. That was a sad event for me. I suppose once tamed it may have become a dreamer too. (Report) Reply
