Golden Cage: A Poem

I asked for pebbles as I fell to the sand
Wickedness exploding in a kind looking hand
I walked away from my one and only land
Loneliness has now become my magic wand

Sky is dark as the night came by
Stars twinkled as my mind asked why
Dungeon of sadness, foolish I
Misery, misery I could never say bye

A land of happiness awaits me
A way to get there I don’t seem to see
Monsters of dark is now clutching to me
I always fail when I try to flee

Once kind people have turned distant now
Smile with a cost, I don’t know how
Distant is good and came fragile love
Fly away, fly away my precious dove

I have waited for something meant to be
Bonded in a golden cage, I tried to flee
A new path opened but just not lovely to me
As it was not the path, I have waited all my life to see

  1. White Bird with the golden tail,
    Like a winters day, in the rain,
    White bird must fly, or she will cry,
    Dear Joanna, sounds like you need some cheering up ! I know, I’ve been there also !
    What can I do to help cheer you up ? Reflections of, the way things used to be ?
