In The Cage... - Poem by Elaaf Ansari

There lived a parrot in the cage,
Humans are pail of rage,
She is adage to me…
Am I a human game?
Am I do not have a life?
Every day I am tread on a sharp knife,
I never saw the sky,
I do not know how to fly,
Ergo I cry.
Are animals do not get the freedom?
Are they eternally live in serfdom?
Animals do not express the feeling but they have,
So please cease the sclave.
I am dying without flying!
I am happy that I leaving this greedy world,
I am forlorn that in the sky I ne'er swirled…

Poet's Notes about The Poem

my aunty's friend had given the parrot(female)to take care of it; because my aunty's friend had been going for a trip.First day I was very happy to see a parrot; but next day at night, I look in parrot's eye, suddenly a thought appear in my mind that it never able to fly because it born in cage and perhaps will die in the cage.I became very sentimental and I also told to my grandmother to release it, she said"It is not our property".I feel very forlorn about it, but I can't able to do that so I decided to make a international appeal that birds
are not for a cage.the most bad I feel that it never able to fly in her life time...
