The Flight of Birds

They too shine
Just like the stars
Dotting night sky

They too fly
When they are free
From their bondages

In a vast expanse
Above the solid base
All during day and night
They fly.

As if free
Without any boundary
Or any bondage
Borders or scale
With only sense of living
Feeding and procreating
They fly, throughout the days
Over those vast expanse
Above that solid base

They too get scared
And often scarred
They’re hunted
And devoured
In spite of all
They are free

Like the stars that shine
But during the daylight
No sense of boundaries or borders
Spreading their wings
Crashing on one another
They are free as they should be
