Parrot Out Of Cage ~ Can't Fly

For several years
he lived inside the cage
not knowing what was his fault
And now when owner is no more
he is out of cage, all sudden
weak, fragile and wingless
trying to identify
where to go.

I like the philosophy behind this poem, we are puppet in the hands of fate, we do not know what is stored for us in life, who is tested for what? Life plays unique games.

Depended life never knows what life is. Accountability brings the truthfulness of life; nice to read

From the shade of love to the barren land we travel all alone and how often our emotions flow in same direction. Too good poem for me, with its simplicity it said many a things to me.

I love this metaphorical poem. So many of us have been caged far too long. But...God has gifted us with our minds. Let's use them to escape the imprisonment!

Habit is more powerful than any emotion. We get used to our cages. Freedom is often a tough journey. A poignant truth told beautifully.

Life is a dilemma specially for those caged in dark for a long period of time. When freedom is attained there is greater dilemma in life.

It's the fault of man as man keeps all others in dilemma for selfish desire.Background idea is highly appreciated Dr Nehal.
