Miranda Mabuto


Caged


Certain of what I want
Sure of how I feel
Determined of making it work
But how to go about it
How to get t into motion

I'm like a caged bird
Fish in a bowl
Boxed shrew
No freedom
No space
I have to find a way out


Stupid to fall prey
Dump to fall victim
Idiotic to be naive
That was me

Now its up to me
to break free and sing with in the wind
swim in the ocean deep
scamper across the forest floor

its all up to me to be free......

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
