Caged by choice or otherwise…

A bird caged by choice

Differs from that of one

Born into captivity or

Captured by force…

Aims to spread wings

Yet,

Crumbs offered

Flight cancelled – no, delayed

Surely bird will fly again…

surely bird will fly again

What about love?

What about companionship?

What about it?

What about freedom,

And high flight miles?

What about eating big catch

Rather than scraps of bread –

Surely bird will fly again…

Crumbs though little are consistent

But-

To starve and hunt

To be proud of caught prey …

Surely bird will fly again.

Surely,

Bird will fly,

Again…
