Oh, The Clay Bird

The Clay Bird


Oh, you the clay bird,

Open your wings,

Fly high!!

What is your flight?

So tell everyone,

Above the sky

There are skies

It doesn’t ends here

Come on in, take a look,

Don't say goodbye...

Why are your feathers frozen?

Why the cold weather didn't go away

Why is your face full of tears?

The power that has been given to you

Is now the time to show...

Oh, the bird of clay,

Go live your life...


In the poem, the poet tells the bird of clay (which depicts Man) to go and attain his dreams because there are no restrictions. You have the ability to fly to great heights.

God has given us the ability to attain our goals, but we as humans forget and focus on what people need from us. We give up our dreams. Which isn't a negative thing if it's for someone's benefit or a worthy cause. But when no one cares, fly high for yourself, touch the sky, feel it, and live it to its best because God has endowed us with the ability to achieve everything we wish; all we need is faith in our God and hard work.

So fly high and praise God, for He is the only one who can protect us. If He is our power, no one in the world can stop us. So simply close the eyes and fly higher and higher.
