Just Fly Away

Hey little birdie

Just fly away

From the lands

You don’t know

As your cries

Are falling into

Nothing but deaf ears

Why wasting time

When you are not welcome

Leave the land of strangers

And break up all the chains

To fly away to the ones

Who will call you dear

Towards the fields

Which you know by heart

You’ve lived a life

Spent dreamy nights

So, go where dreams

Don’t just stay dreams

Time is still in your wings

Fly away little birdie

As far away as you can

From where your dreams

Can’t see a day’s light

      Thank you very much for liking this, Tina.
      I should be thankful to those few noisy ravens I saw earlier today, as their constant cawing inspired this 🙂

    I feel like there is so much in this poem – commentary on the state of things.

      Very much indeed, VJ.
      Most of the most, we all feel like this little birdie and the voice within us tells us to just break free.
