As mind breaks the shackles,

I recognise their nature.

What bound it,

The little view!

Caged in self perception,

Flapping self hurt,

Feeding hope.

Sleeping dejection,

Waking frightened.

The cycle seeming endless!

Desiring to break away,

Calling out for help,

Waiting for someone

to grace,

To open the cage!

And then,

A day,

A passerby smiled

With gleaming naughty eyes,

Compassionate yet indifferent,

Pointed gently with the graze,

Brought to my attention

Ah! But!!

The cage is

locked from inside!

Took no time then,

To cast away.

And I fly in heaven,

To see new dawns.

To now dwell in

A place, to which

I always belonged..
