The Birds of My Words

by Waishali Deshmukh

The birds of my words
are so shy
they come to the doors of my lips
but dare not to fly!

They remember the dark past
and ponder on the consequence;
they lack confidence
though they have eloquence.

To speak or not to speak
that remains a question.
What should be left?
What to mention?

At last they take a decision
to cross the lips' fence
they force themselves out
but speak something else!


Thank you charlenew for the beautiful picture.
