Am I ready

Written by: Irfana Ali Bhat

A bird caught in a cage
My thoughts never new flight
Pent up they were with rage

Life never seemed bright
I in me ,somewhere lost
Nothing seemed to go right

Yearned to fly at any cost
Shattered  strength, I salvaged
Somehow wanted to melt this frost

All my wounds I gradually bandaged
Fought for smiles in exchange
All the obstacles ,I challenged

Love brought this  big change
But still I have some fright
Lurking in  a feeling so strange
Me fluttering my wings for flight

Wings restored again
But still a question remains
Am I ready for this flight??
