A Little Bird

A Little Bird

A Poem by The Pain Stays Fresh

This is my favorite piece.

I came across a bird the other day.
He was perched upon a branch.
How I wish I could be like that little bird.
Free. Not chained to this Earth
by worry and responsibility.
Without a care in the world, 
I could fly.
If only I were like the little bird.

Eagles and owls? They hunt little birds, and sometimes eat them in the air whilst flying back to a nest!! lol Did you write this one in your tree? ....birds have worms. : ) But this is a pretty poem, so I don't mean to sound so critical of the written word without understand what it is that is implied of course. I like it. xoxo -Mark

Yes that would certainly be nice... then again life might get a little boring.

Wonderful metaphor, guess we all would love it ! Your poem has something from haikus, specially when talking about nature and something from our occidental poetry when expressing thoughts and wishes, great job =D

I'm a total black sheep. I love reading, writing, talking, music older than I am, and watching old westerns on rainy days. I prefer writing stories and short poetry. You'd think by reading some of my.. more..
