I will fly!

I want to fly high like a bird in the sky,
But this world doesn’t let me try.
It has put me inside this cage,
Which keeps me confined at every stage.
There are many things that I want to do,
I have many dreams which I want to come true.
I know I can do it all,
But I am not allowed to stand tall.
The world humiliates me for the little mistakes that I make,
They laugh at the risks that I plan to take.
They say I don’t have it in me to fly high,
And ask me to forget about reaching the sky.
With those words that they feel will demotivate me,
They expect me to give up and let it be.
But I am not the one to stop,
I will not be satisfied till I reach the top.
For every time I fall I will rise,
I will wipe those tears from my eyes.
From every mistake that I make,
I will have a lesson to take.
Those confines of the cage I will break,
The very foundation of your wrong thoughts I will shake.
Nothing can stop me and make me cry,
For I am born with wings to fly high!

    Great job – you express the sentiments of millions all over the world, just a lot better than most of us can! I post about cheese scones, a little more mundane – but if you read my post, you will see that I too will never give up! http://masabicou.com/cheese-scones-french-way/ Good luck, Caty

    Hi Reema, I love how you shifted from feeling confined to being determined not to be confined. I love to write poetry myself but have not been in poetic circles. It was nice to come across this. I really like your form of writing also. It was visually pleasant to read as well as inspirational.

  4. A lovely reminder of the purpose of our wings!

  5. That was very beautifully written, Reema! You left me spell bound almost after every stanza.
