Seasonal Birds and rejected refugees


Crossing borders
Breaking rules
Flying birds
Having a hope of life
Entered into their kingdom
Where the freedom is

From region to region
And season to season
Singing and flying
Enjoy the immigrant life

No one ask from where they come
Fruits and nectar warmly welcome
Immense sky freedom to fly
Differentiated man question why

Crossing borders secretly
Violate rules willingly
Creating stories so strongly
Refugee life hopefully

Having taken finger prints
Identity in data bank
Scanning the life so sharp
Bounded freedom granted

Here and there question is freedom
Freedom and life relatively different
Human beings of highest wisdom
Borders still are so apparent

Seasonal birds are free to fly
Failed identity compel to fly
Dream of freedom going to die
Rejected humanity of world so why
