Treasure Island

Ellias Anderson C.A ( Known as captain A)

(Iran, Islamic republic of)


Of the blue sky with its red color
There was a bird that couldn't go higher
That bird was something familiar for humans and us,
Yes, that was our idiot wishes and our device
It wanted to go higher, it was greedy
It doesn't think about others… such a Piddy!
And because of these reasons and something else,
That bird was blamed to stay down
It wasn't allowed to going up or reaching any extra wishes
Only down, only alone, and only sad…..
It was a terrible life…, for a bird it was bad.
In this life, some of us are like this bird,
They think about themselves, so they couldn't go higher
If we had the wings, we have to know how to fly,
We have to help others and make them free,
Not putting the winglessness people in a cage
As a famous song, as a memorable rhyme of The Eagles, who flowed…
WE are all just prisoners here of an our device! '

    Caged birds, would be sad to stay in cage never able to go outside....if they are humans, it's like we are controlled by something that we cant control our freedom. Some birds outside the cage just free but too scare to fly, and their courage is caged by own confidence and believe in self...Cage can be physical and inner...I believe everyone has a wing, not in physical one but the spirit carries all of these thing, if you believe u can do something just do it, go achieve your dream...people should not be your cage, not by thier your heart from fears, and u are not deserve to live in cage...Go higher...pluck the star to shine your skin LOL, nice and moving poem Ellias_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
