Favorite Quote:
I tell you this, and I tell you plain:
What you have done, you will do again;
You will bite your tongue, careful or not,
Upon the already-bitten spot.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960

Caged and sadly sitting on the floor
A bird chirps, only once, not more
She thinks about the sky, the clouds and sun
But as she tries to fly
They smack those gray thin bars

She wants to fly, to be free and happy
But her owner does nothing, just sits there laughing
So she guesses that now she'll never fly
For as long as she's in that cage
All she'll ever be doing
Is amusing that daggone owner

This is my third poem I have made and finished. I wrote it for a forum, as a request. I'm pleased with this poem, compared to the two others I made..
