Prashasti is a working IT professional, who in her free leisure time can be found writing or reading poems, stories, articles.
Such is a story of a bird whose wings were broken to let her be used for amusement and not fly. This bird wants to break those inhumane chains and boundaries and fly high to live a life she was meant to. In this poem both a human and an animal can be referred as the bird, because either ways it speaks lives for each and every living being on earth. Hope you enjoy reading this poetic tribute.
What would it be like,
If I get back my wings,
Would I get to wander the world again, as I flow through the wind and sing,
I wish to be beneath those clouds,
From where I could gaze this beautiful earth,
Will this ever happen or will I remain locked behind this cage and dirt,
I wish to fly high,
Feel the moon, the sun and the rain,
I want to glide freely in the blue sky, unbound from these blood stained chains,
I wonder how liberated my life would be,
When I would finally get to live like a bird,
I wish someday maybe where I could speak and be heard!
