Where Birds Need Not Fly, by Frank Tavares


Buried under the soil of loneliness,

Simply a seedling waiting to grow,

I find myself reaching toward the surface

To a light that shines brighter than it does here.


Wingless under the stars of hope,

Simply a bird with clipped wings,

I find myself waiting for a plane that will never come

That would take me to a place more colorful.


Sailing on a windless sea,

Simply a sailor with no compass,

I find myself longing direction

To a place where birds need not fly.
