76.Bird,don’t fly

Bird, don’t fly.

Keep sitting on the branch

Or cheerfully hop across

To another branch nearby,

But don’t ever try to fly.

Good, you know how to fly,

But why use this skill ?

Why force me to clip your wings ?

Why make me suffer this pain ?

Bird, I love you a lot,

But can’t let you fly,

I feel small when you fly

And scared when you soar.

I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon. By the way, rather nice design this blog has, but how about changing it every few months?

tum meri parwaz mita doge lekin
meri pyaas ka kya karoge tum?
Pankh kutar dene se
nahi kutre jaate
khyalaat, sapne, ummedein
sirf zariya hain
aur zariye
aur bhi hain..
khwahish ho hi jayegi poori..
Tab kya karoge tum?

From the Bird:

i am not responsible
for your insecurity
or envy.

You can scare me
with the blade
but you cannot
harp on the theme of love
For love
does not enslave.
Either you can love
or you can clip.
You cannot
talk about both.

Decide, o dark face
outside the cage
Which will it be?
