Crying Bird - Poem by Afrasiab khan

As he gilds over the tender sea
He cries for his omissions
He never looked behind
As if he didn't know what was on his mind

He winged his way
To an unending sky
Crying his grieves on the way
He never looked down
As if ignoring a crown

He ends his journey of sadness
On a jovial place
As if came out of a cage
