Treasure Island

The Young Birds

They are in a hurry, to join the flurry
Of the birds, that flies to the Sun.
Their claws are inching, the dreams are stitching.
To watch the world from the zenith of horizon.

In a tough race, they fly with grace-
The best their delicate feathers can manage.
The bloods in their veins, is now seen as stains
Dabbling their feathers, imperious to their courage.

Their little flight gives everyone delight.
But when as scheduled, they fall to the ground…
They all in rage, give an angry gaze.
No aid, no sympathy is found.

The birds are frivolous, their dreams are obvious.
But why expect them to fly splendidly so immature?
True; their incessant zeal is their sole feel
But why aren't they directed towards what they are looking for?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Expect from the ones who are capable. Or make them capable and then expect. In my culture, Indian, I have observed how some youngsters are killing their lives under the burden of expectations. They are expected to do splendid deeds because of competition. And when they try and when they fail, they are tagged too ambitious. There is a need to understand youngsters and what they want.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
