?

splintered wings,
kicking dust,
seeking release,

bound, humans,
bereft of feeling,

while,

caged souls,
bereft of hope,

wills strangled,
spirits mangled,

wane,
wither,

away …

… all for a few laughs,

perhaps,
a couple of giggles,

some people amused,

fleeting,

this interest,
novelty,

but for the caged ones,
whose open skies lie broken, tattered,

caged souls,
hearts,

wills,
resolve,

now brittle,

having felt the stab,

of dreams dashed,
hopes shattered.
