Moaning Bird - Poem by Queeny Gona

I used to fly all over the world
Chirping along with my flock
Flying round and round and round
But now I am all alone caged here
Missing my friends and family
Above all, my freedom.
My feelings! The selfishmen never care
Chained me, wore me and tore me
My body, mind and soul their slaves.
A helpless tiny bird in hostel
What can she look forward to?
Will ever freedom come my way!

    The famous philosopher Rousseau said 'Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains'No one is totally free.It is always a combination of freedom and restraint.We are bound by rules, regulations, social customs and laws of the society.These laws are framed to regulate our behaviour and for the betterment of society.It depends how you perceive a situation 'Mind'is the only domain where one can enjoy total freedom.The key is how to feel free even under restraints.Thanks Queeny for your thought provoking poem which made me ponder over the question of freedom.

    It is hard to handle full freedom. Sometimes confinement is needed for the meantime of our youth.
    Wonderful poem

    Such occasional confinement is nice Queeny! Even the hostel life, you can enjoy! There also you may have a flock of birds of a same feather, if you identify! Only thing, your sky won't be as vast as what you had earlier!

    You have successfully captured the ennui felt by a home loving girl in a hostel! Enjoyed!
