Spirit of a bird


A caged bird wants to fly, far away in the sky,
Looking in to each and every eye with a hope
Of flying high,
but the infinite sky restraining her
Spirit, pulling her back not to go ahead,
The poor bird decides not to give up her
desire to rise and she spreads her wings inside the cage
with a hope opens the gate, gathers all the strength
and goes beyond the restraints,
Spreads her strong wings in the cool breeze
Takes a long breath, leaves behind the rest
She is no more a caged bird and shows her strength
to the world.
