Freedom Is A State Of Mind - Poem by Dr. Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek

A helpless bird in this cage
It is my home prison
And for no good reason
It is a half metre range
It is so strange
So strange! !

And beyond my sight is the blue sky
Beyond my reach and ranges too high
And above my head is the cage's roof
That I can touch with my head
It is always there, as the only proof
That I am a prisoner in a half metre cage
For a whole age

When I beat my wings to fly
To fathom the distant blue sky
The thin wire will pull me down
Back to my cage to drown
In my rage
But still,
And although I am so lonely and ill
Still,
I can sing with all happiness
My lovely melody of freedom
I care not for the cage
I can live another age
I do never look behind
So I am always happy and free
As freedom is a state of mind

    When I beat my wings to fly
    To fathom the distant blue sky
    The thin wire will pull me down

    Yes, freedom is a state of mind.... One can be happy even inside a cage. There are people who feel caged in a world of no boundaries! Reading this beautiful poem I am reminded of the famous lines of Milton... The mind is its own place and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.... (Report)Reply
