(un)apologetic

forlorn
I opened
the cage
to
let the bird
feel
its first flight
It yelped
cathartically
as though
“at least one of us
deserve to spread
the wings free!”

I know this is my third poem writing on birds, setting it free from cage. I pet 6 birds and sometimes find myself guilty for not allowing them enjoy their wonderful ability to fly. Several times I had decided to set them free but I also scare that if they are unable to fly high and unable to find food, they might die or become a prey to another animal or bird.. This guilt perhaps makes me write again and again.. Does anyone of you have bird’s? Would love to hear your emotions…

    My nani had a parrot
    He was there as far as I remember
    When my nani passed away he too died few days later
    Nani lived all alone in her house and that parrot was her only family I guess
    We all visited her only on festivals otherwise she lived with the parrot all alone in that big house
