Story of a cursed angel bird
An angelic bird,
Born to a Godly couple in a heaven,
Merrily singing and playing all the day,
Never knew cruel world outside.
A celestial Bird, knew no sin,
Eventually grown into a all smiley,
Beautiful and ever cheerful young one,
Yet with all virtues…gentle, sensible,
Loving, caring……just like her parents.
There comes another young bird,
Calling from a far land, different (?) family.
A heavenly bird, distracted by
Its different color, voice…..a fatal attraction!
Started flying together to a different world.
A cheerful singing bird,
Initially puzzled with all ‘difference’
Slowly realizing the cruelty of a new world, persons there!
Trying to coop up in a hellous life,
Tolerated all silently, forgotten its divine voice.
A bird laden with all love, kindness
In its blood, now drained off.
Dried veins left with only pain and suffering,
Oh! Its Godly bird, so it can never stop
Doing good to its partner bird, rule of divine parents!
But now the fellow bird, after a decade,
Wants to fly away from that singing bird,
From whom it learnt flying skills!
The crook bird after grabbing her colorful feathers,
Draining her divine rhythm, wants escape.
The heavenly family with their wounded
Little song bird (now muted) , all mourning.
Family knowing know sin, vices
Still preaching and practicing good.
Cause it’s the rule of heaven.
The heartbroken bird, with its little one
Lost belief in people and goodness,
Becoming an atheist.
What a tragedy,
Heavenly bird paying for no mistake of her.
