The Broken Wings of a Blind Bird By Jasen Sousa

The Broken Wings of a Blind Bird


While others soared
it poured
on this blind bird
who was born without the ability to glide.
It couldn’t take to the skies
no matter how hard it tried.

While others soared
it poured
on this blind bird
who was born without sight.
It was forever night
for this blind bird born without the ability
to take flight.

This bird clings
to the ground
while others spread their wings.
Staring at a telephone wire,
never to fly any higher.
The blind bird
sings, it lives a happy life
because it never experienced a different vision.
The blind bird
has been told this is a normal way of living.

The blind bird
who can't reach the sky.
The blind bird
who can't see its potential to fly.
