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.
