That Bird

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

that-bird

Battered Wings…Grounded because of indecisions and bad decisions...

Flying and Soaring in the Mind only because of the hard times…

That Bird…Wounded in the Heart, Heavy and tired Wings, beating on an invisible cage that the mind made...

That Bird…Ridiculed in silence by others, by self…

Hurting, uncertain, dignity always tested, dreams arrested on sight...

That Bird….Looking like my kin… Looking like my friend… Looking Like________ ?

That Bird…Searching for a way out and a way in simultaneously…

The other birds have started talking because That Bird is now walking when birds were made to fly…

That Bird….Looking Like My Kin, Looking Like my friend, looking like_______________?

Thank you because That Bird turned into the Word Bird and I have been flying from the ground up ever since...

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 25, 2019:

Very nice. We all search for desires in life. Often we are wounded by others left to try to fly again but the wound is too deep.

Our minds fly vivid with dreams but the pathways to achieve them are often blocked.

Great write.
