NOT ALL BIRDS FLY

NOT ALL BIRDS FLY

What is this,
a cage?

See,
No free bird
wants to be caged,
for simplicity laces
their wings,
as they spread
their them to fly.

Listen,
no caged bird
wants to be recaptured,
with its wings clipped;
and then left to chirp
painfully, while it peers
outside; its neck secured
with strings of steel.

All birds love to be free,
but a bird caged for long
can’t accept freedom,
even when declared free,
for it hovers, circling
that cage, unaware
of its unlatched door.

Allow a bird to fly;
soaring high.
Perhaps the eagle
has a story to tell you,
for no bird that loves to
fly high wants its wings
clipped, and stopped
from embracing the clouds.
