Pity the Birds

Pity the Birds

A Poem by Captivating Ink
"

They aren't as free as once thought.

"

Once you grow wings

And soar for the first time

Enriching your heart

In the great freedoms of the world

Your head will always tilt

A bit towards the ocean above

As you wish to soar

Just once more.

For you will never forget

How you felt infinite

If but just

In that one moment

Of pureness.

And you will envy

The birds

Who taunt you from above

As they taste the sweetness

That you have only sampled

Once.

But be jealous no more, my precious sweet

Pity the birds

Do not envy

For no matter how far

They roam

They will always be

Tethered to the earth.

A prisoner

Just like the rest of us.

Nice view of something that everyone thinks about. Thinking about it, it's kind of a tease that they get to fly but they can probably never fly as high as they would want to (if they had those sort of thoughts) Well written poem. It was beautiful and made me think. Great combo :)

Now I REALLY want to fly. I almost feel bad for not being able to do so.

We all do :)
This is very thought-inducing. As previous comments have said, the majority of human beings long to have the gift of flight. I will not lie, I am part of that majority. Your poem is...... Well I cannot describe this without sounding like an idiot. In short, this is an amazing poem.
