Captive

 

menoevil
Captive
Free–
we think we’re free
as we covet and pay
for things
a fix
incapable of a solution

 

Free–
the birds fly free
as we feed them
from our cage
terrible depths
our humanness leaks

 

Free–
fly or stay with me
either way
we’re not released
the mind
our prison and I keep the pretty weeds

      1. Menagerie is AWESOME! I missed doing the prompts in April, I was so busy with poeming every day for several sites. Happy to be back. Glad you followed me over. Happy poeming!

  1. “the birds fly free as we feed them from our cage” for me, that could have been the whole poem. great lines!

Words, love them! Have some? Leave them.
