Like a Bird

I wish I could be like you.
You know only freedom,
where as I am locked,
trapped in a cage that deprives me of my freedom.
I can only sit and watch you,
soaring in the midnight sky and
gliding in the rising sun,
while I am waiting,
waiting for someone to open my cage,
waiting for my wings to flutter and like you,
be free.

Ink


When the ink is spilled,
It cannot be erased,
It cannot be undone,
You cannot change the hands of time.
Covering it up and hiding it won't change the fact that it’s there.
And it waits, temptingly awaits to those oblivious around it,
When, one day, it draws attention to the perceiving eyes of man,
a little seed of question sprouts.
"What is underneath this mask, this facade?"
Ink?

Shadow

A rude remark, you turn away,
A slap in the face, you keep your mind at bay.
“It’s okay, it’s okay”
But – it’s not okay.
Silently, you quiver in fear,
Waiting for the pain to disappear,
And your breath comes out in short gasps,
Because it’s your sanity you cannot grasp.
Huddled in a corner trapped with agony,
Realizing, you’re only your shadow,
A figure of what you used to be.


NO STEALING!!!! (even though they r bad >.<)

i like shadow the best. Like a bird was good but it reminded me of " I know why the caged bird sings".

i found it~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!
Here:

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings


The free bird leaps
on the back of the win
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hillfor the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

Though this poem is WAY better than mine........theres a tweensy bit of resemblance
