Little Birds

Born with the freedom of all little birds,

You'll come to discover the irony of age,

That one by one with your own words,

You'll forge the bars of your own cage.

Thanks Keith, I think we're all quite philosophical, especially all the WOLers and once again thank you Mae for always being supportive and encouraging.

Jason,

It is often said that a good poet is also a philosopher at heart and this poem albeit brief is such an example. Thank you for this

Thanks Frances, Desmond, Victoria, Mona and Cora for liking and thanks to Mae, Jennifer, Jane and Martin for your kind comments.
I'm glad you liked this one because I did. It's not often I really like something I wrote, normally I just feel glad to get down on paper, or so to speak, so I really appreciate it.

That last line holds the telling words to this poem and rounds it off very nicely.
Nice one Jason
