A torn paper here,
a torn paper there,
I had Erased all the contents,
Erased, but overflowing with fear..
I held my pen again
to finally write it down..
And as soon as I started etching.
I felt a stingy pain..
holding my hands down.
Surrounded by walls on all sides.
with barbed wire covering all its face..
I yearned for the outside..
but felt protected here.. in this “OPEN CAGE”
I was flustered, I had too much on my mind..
I wanted to break free from these binds..
but too scared of what I’ll find..
Will I jeopardize my whole future?
or Be strong enough to make history?
This cage wasnt stopping me from going..
It was just me..
Holding onto it… tight..
I was already hurt, didnt wanna hurt more..
I knew if I forced myself out..
these barbed wire wont feel like anything..
I was just scared of a world of hurt..
waiting for me outside..
I knew, I was standing on the edge..
there was an endless abyss beneath..
and an infinite unknown above my sight..
I know, if I let go of the cage..
I will fall down for sure..
I reminiscent, I then gave it a thought… I rethought..
And then finally made up my mind..
I wasnt gonna fall down..
I am not gonna let go..
But.. Today I am gonna break free.
and flap my wings once more..
I knew, I was still weak..
I still had no idea to fly..
But, I wont give in to my fears..
I am gonna sit in the cage..alone and cry
I am gonna soar through the skies..
feel the wind, rustling through my hair..
feeling the changing weather..
find the unknown.. I was looking upto
All My Life..!
