Ain't no Freedom

Ain't no Freedom

A Poem by Latifa
"

pray for me my fellow writers, this is a crucial time of my life.

"



fractured, fragile, flying
ain't no more flying
the feathers are soaked in water
ain't no more flying

blunt,  brute ,blades of ego
cuts the wings and soak the feather in water
blunt,brute, blades of the old man's ego
gash the young bird's wings with ego
ain't no more flying

hell, ain't no freedom!
hell, ain't no living!
slavery has worn the cloak of ego
to hang the bird's freedom

thank you for the review :)
I like the alliteration and repetition. I feel like this should be said out loud.
I like the idea of blades of ego.

The metaphor is chilling. I imagine the sad anger of a bird who knows the sky, unable to return to it because of damaged wings.

Freedom is valuable and with every work of yours that I read, I can feel that pain, that struggle.. It's so moving, motivational and mind blowing of the passion you have for it. I love you for this. :D

harsh emotions Latifa, this is a very tough time in your life i'm guessing, you can use anger and suffering to create and you have done so here :)

All things come back to strike the ego's soul.
