Those Crazy Birds by Ahmad Al-Khatat

Those Crazy Birds

Those birds set free 
They never fly again 
They don’t sing to you 
cause we broke their wings 

Those birds are mute 
They are extremely wild 
But their sorrows turned 
into flightless birds in the cage 

Through the early morning 
I’m the caged bird standing 
in front of the fragile mirror 
Looking for a smaller cage 

This life is a beautiful soul
But people have damaged
-the birdhouse inside of my 
spirit, I will be fine by the blue skies 

Those crazy birds will sing to 
us, just keep your head very up
Look for meaning and change 
-the way you sit under the shadow
