She Silently Cries


Somewhere on the plains the stripped tiger cats roar,
Somewhere a young tigress is pacing the floor.
Behind heavy bars and she hasn't a clue,
Confusion and loneliness deeper than blue.

She felt the small stinging blocking her senses,
She didn't know man or high covered fences.
But she knows of them now with absolute fears,
Bequeathed to the plains stay her innocent years.

While thousands stare in, she avoids looking out,
Her ears flattened back, show mistrusting and doubt.
The shadows keep hidden, her bright yellow eyes,
Her freedom forbidden she silently cries.

    This is an exceptionally well written poem. Rhyming is flawless, words selectively chosen for the right expression.
    'Bequeathed to the plains stay her innocent years.'
    Behind this line lies hidden your innocent feelings for the caged animal.
    'The shadows keep hidden, her bright yellow eyes,
    Her freedom forbidden she silently cries.'
    Simply superb! 10/10. (Report) Reply
