Caged Singing Bird
by Meenakshi Madhur
Bookmark and Share
  The singing bird has been caged.
It's fed well...very well
so that it looks in its best of health.
It's feathers are groomed each day
so that it looks its best.

But how can they feed its
soul which is starving and
dying each and every day
a slow and painful death ?
How can they possibly groom
the wings of its spirit
which is withering away with
every passing day ?

The big blue sky overlooking
the cage and the bird inside it
awaits helplessly
and prays that some day
the bird will gather the
strength and the courage
to break open the cage
and set its soul and spirit free.
And that day
the singing bird will soar up the sky
and will fly to places where it wants
to go and explore
and will sing to its heart content,
its melody filling the air
and the big blue sky reveling
in the melodious air.

May be some day......
