Locked Down Freedom

Locked Down Freedom

1 min 12 1 min 12

I miss going out and sit by a tree in a park and see the clouds passing by. This lockdown has caged my trotting heart and my thoughts are thrown back to the time I visited zoo to see the caged animals.


I think zoos are the loneliest and most cruel places in the whole world. I wonder "What happens when animals in zoo give birth to their offsprings? What do they whisper in their babies' ears? Do they say sorry for bringing them into a world of pain and suffering, or do they hide their pain and welcome them as if there isn't anything better outside? Do they pass on strength or let out words of encouragement and positivity? Do they sing them songs from jungle or do they tell them that jungle is an imaginary place and they shouldn't aspire to go back there? Or do they tell them not to bring their offsprings onto this world to suffer?"

Their sad eyes question, "Is your enjoyment worth our freedom at all?"
