Treasure Island

Queeny Gona

(16th august,1987 / KANIGIRI)

MOANING BIRD


I used to fly all over the world
Chirping along with my flock
Flying round and round and round
But now I am all alone caged here
Missing my friends and family
Above all, my freedom.
My feelings! The selfishmen never care
Chained me, wore me and tore me
My body, mind and soul their slaves.
A helpless tiny bird in hostel
What can she look forward to?
Will ever freedom come my way!

    Such occasional confinement is nice Queeny! Even the hostel life, you can enjoy! There also you may have a flock of birds of a same feather, if you identify! Only thing, your sky won't be as vast as what you had earlier!

    You have successfully captured the ennui felt by a home loving girl in a hostel! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply
