Peace Disturbed

I envied the kite’s peace bound persona in every aspect except for its conquered liberties
Captured liberty threaded within ropes leading to the hand of man
How tragic that man’s mania of ownership has claimed the scenery of peace
The kite flies continuously as if it’s attempting to escape the ropes hold
The children watch in fascination of such a delicate picture
I watch in sorrow wishing I had my pocket knife
I’d set you free little kite.  I’d set you free

(excerpt from my journal, not an actual poem. Lol  sorry for the waste of time)

    Actually it's the fact that this was only meant for you originally that is most special to me. It's like I get a glimpse of what you didn't want other people to read, only yourself, almost like eavesdropping. It does read very poetic though. the kite is a natural metaphor for the subject.

    This is a nice write, I would say it is a poem... free verse even. Very nicely done. Speak out for your soul. Thank you for your comment on my writing it made my day! It is always nice to know that we are not alone. Best of luck to you. Smiles from Lolita
