Birds - Poem by Abhay Shah
BIRDS - BIRDS
Once I asked a bird in a cage 'Why are you here? '
An innocent reply came ' I think, for them I was very dear! '
The bird then asked me ' What is your dream? '
I said ' To fly! '
It said ' You don't have wings, but you can take mine'
To which I asked 'Don't you need them? What will you do without yours? '
It sadly said ' In this cage I cannot fly! These wings are of no use behind these closed doors! '
My heart sank to the thought,
That a bird could think what a human could not.
I decided to set it free,
and on the count of three,
I opened the cage without thinking about many things,
The bird came out, filled with joy,
And told me ' I can still give you my wings! '
