The Bird
O Bird! Where are you? Where can I meet you?
O Bird! You are the embodiment of a new lease of life.
You have come to kick open the door of bondage
And illuminate a revived Soul.

Though the evening comes with slow steps
And signals the songs to cease;
Though your companions have gone to take rest
And you are tired………….
Though fear broods in the dark and the face of the sky is veiled.
O Bird listen to me, don’t fold your wings.

O Bird! I ran across hill and dale.
I wander through nameless land in search of you.
You are the immortal entity
And the torch bearer of pure knowledge.
You are the essence of all desirable beauties
And the synonym of Love and Liberty
Plus Justice and Security.

O Bird! You are unconquerable and invincible.
Everybody tries to suppress you.
But you are omnipotent and giver of renewed life
To the inflicted minds.

O Bird! Don’t fold your wings.
Make me your string.
You are like the fresh dews of early morning.
Only you can bring the beacon of hope
To the imprisoned and dejected souls.
