Jailed Within

Let us out!

Let us free!

I looked around,

To hunt down the cries.

.

The cries grew louder,

And it came from within us.

Oh! I realized that,

They were our silly minds.

.

We are trapped, cried they,

Within you great mortals.

Suffocated are we,

With your thoughts and deeds.

.

Forced are we, to traverse,

The narrow channels in you.

Blinded are we, with the,

Self restrictions imposed by you.

.

Can’t you hear us flutter,

In agony and in an urge to fly?

Can’t you see our eyes,

That wish to see beyond your sight?

.

Open yourself, broaden your thoughts,

See the world sans restrictions.

Release us and feel relaxed,

It’s our please, please understand.
