Wild Birds in Captivity

Those birds that roamed free, Endless flights filled with glee, They glide over the trees, Flying side to side with the breeze, Above the deserts, they can reach, Following the wind that they preach, Finding the oasis that they screech, Under the clouds that breach, A glimpse of their prey, They plunge headfirst at bay, Stumble and tumble right on the net, Shackle and tackle trying to release itself yet, Realizing the faults of one’s actions, The bird gives out its different reactions, Confused as the bird seems, Its faith got interrupted by human needs.
