Bound and Tied


bound and tied
in confined spaces I lay
the world too small
but smaller are its thoughts
pleasure they gain
at nipping your wings
they haven’t flown
so how could they allow
that you be different
and follow your own path

bound and tied
in confined spaces I lay
choking
at their orthodox thoughts
hard it is here to breathe
I wish to break free
I long to just flee
flutter my wings
in those unknown skies
and follow hued dreams

the harder you try
to blend yourself into me
the harder
shall I bounce back
ferocious and fiery
bound and tied
I shall now not lay
the confined spaces
shall now
no longer contain Me !!

  2. Very thoughtful poem, depicting the reality of life. I loved the lines " the world too small
    but smaller are its thoughts
    pleasure they gain
    at nipping your wings
    they haven’t flown
    so how could they allow
    that you be different
    and follow your own path
