Something I wonder about every day...

Bound to the Ground:

When I see a bird,

I start to wonder.

They can go anywhere they please,

Fly over land,

Fly over seas,

Go places, see things.

Unbound by rules and people suppressing,

Our minds, our thoughts.

But I know how hard I’ve fought,

To find my place within this world,

Only to lose it because of some words.

Then I start to ponder,

Do I have myself to blame,

For not doing the same?

Really interesting poem. Short and sweet, with a lot of impact and hidden messages behind the words.. I love the imagery you've used of the birds, being so free both in mind and body. Great work!
