What I Told A Caged Bird:
I see what they think of you
A little avian that delights human mind
Do they not see? That their pleasure is a corollary of your pain.
You wonder how I understand?
Come see my world.
They fetter you with benevolence
Turned you into a showcase of spectacle
Deprived you of choice and filched your voice
You’re one of the few friends I have
But I want you to leave; go all out for freedom.
Freedom too has a silver lining
It comes at a cost, sometimes you may feel unwanted and lost
But when hope is hanging loose, try to find a way back in
These are your choices, choose a dart and make your mark.
What The Caged Bird Told Me
I like the person they want me to be
Then I realise it’s a version I can never be
They ask so much of me; I can’t upset them
All I do is sit in a cage and try to sing their song.
I made my choice, I broke out of the cage.
Breathing fortitude, I’m learning about life
I tried making friends, but I couldn’t figure out
Who is a friend and who is a sham.
So, I befriended silence.
Now I just sit alone.
Staring at the sky in the dark,
Counting stars and thinking about my story arc
Wishing life to be lot simpler than it is
I don't know why, is it just me?
I'm only a kid and this world feels too big for me.
