Phoenix - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

I want to fly free like a bird
Though my wings are hidden somewhere,
I tried to search but not so hard
As I’m afraid they have run into fire.
I tossed and turned again and again
For thinking of myself through the night,
It only appeared a cloud without rain
Covering all hopes out of my sight.
I don’t know where to put my will
Each of the places seem confusing
All those undesired things now I feel
Standing between right and wrong choosing.
Then I think back of the mythical bird
Who burns to death to take a re-birth
Its magical spirit make me wondered
And helped my heart to be full with mirth.
Now I’m not scared if the wings catch fire;
I must be brave like a ignited phoenix
To regain my dreams from wherever they are;
I’m now prepared to bear all risks.
Soon there will be an unbound day
When I shall soar beyond the sky
Gliding smoothly from bank to bay
Where no one could make me tie.
Though l shall return safe to home
Here all my peace happily lies,
The day after that I’ll again roam
Following the golden rays of sun-rise.

    You have derived inspiration from the phoenix bird when your zest for life began to droop! Yes, there is always the possibility of a come back for us though now we may be passing through trials! The sky is limitless for those who wish to soar high. What is needed is the courage to spread the wings and plunge into the unknown! Great write Sanjukta..... full of positive energy at the end!
