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.
