I live in this cage.
I eat and drink.
I'm trapped in this prison
no way to escape.

I sit here waiting
for a way to get away.
But no one ever,
leaves me the chance

But one day,
the door swung open.
And a young boy screamed,
"Go on! Be free!"

So I ran
as fast as I could.
I flapped my wings
and began to fly.

I flew high,
high and free.
Looking down,
down at the ground.

I saw the boy,
smiling.
And to this day
I still fly free.

(smiles) Oh Connel, this is wonderful, this had me envisioning a little boy looking into birdcages and seeing little birds trapped in and wishing they could be free without being in danger, then the boy befriends one bird and then sets it free, crying with a few tears of sadness but also blessed it could fly like every bird should with grace! (big hugggsssssss) This is marvelous, sweet friend, you know just how to touch the heart of the poet, yay, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Chris, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Freedom is what we need. I like the way you strung this together.

nice transition, from cages to flying free.
good way to end a poem, with a positive
outlook on things.

i didn't enjoy this as some of your other
ones, but it hit.

Magnificent!...

A friend hears the song in my heart, and sings it to me when my memory fails.

This was so carefree, emancipating and up-lifting!
Fly high in the sky and ride the thermals!

Warm morning hugs,

With an imaginative mind like yours, you are able to fly as free as a bird whenever you feel the need.

Warm hugs,
