Break Free - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

I saw one bird like me
Living on a dead tree
Waiting for long to see
Pouring shower of glee
On its lonely broken lee

It doesn’t have a he
Nor even a she
Or a hands of three
To hear its silent plea
For making gloom flee

Nights it rains like sea
Days it sings like bee
Whatever case it may be
It shares honey of key
To make all feel happy

It felled on its knee
Prayed in deep agree
Said I will be emcee
Will perform a jubilee
For it I’m breaking free

I smiled and said, its we
