Joyless freedom






(Image taken from here)


Caged old parrot freed
at its last stage of life; It
feels no joy

feels no joy, Poor bird!
though its anticipated
freedom arrived!

freedom arrived
What for? Its wings went numb!
Can it fly now!??

Very sad.. i hate caging birds... a bird has always been a symbol of freedom.. birds and cages never go together!

True Valli! This is like justice delayed is justice denied:)

full of emotions and I have felt it once when freedom is snatched from your own home and caged for a long time..weak but still surviving..nicely written Valli ;)

This is a bit sad ..I am sure you meant it on a much broader canvas of humanity..parrot is just a symbol..your message is loud and clear.. made me flutter my wings to see if strength is left.. Thanks Valli..
