Birds are not meant to be caged !

My youngest cousin "Nikhil" has also started writing poems, the below mentioned poem was shared with me today, which I found to be really impressive. Here's it:

You can like the poem on poetry.com where he posts his poems. I have also posted the poem text below for easy reference:

Some birds are never meant to be caged 
their feathers are just too bright 
just like the desperate hand 
unable to cease the grainy sand 
trying to catch them and get a hold of them 
well you just not might 
Some birds are never meant to be caged 
their feathers are just too bright 
Some birds SHOULD not be caged 
their beset leaves those standing way above enraged 
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” 
but I say,” Hell itself bows to the almighty alone!” 
Mock him and your life will be hanging on a precarious hook 
the whole ground bellow your feet will flip like pages of a book 
you might stay happy and joyous for one night 
but on another your whole life might turn into a plight 
Some birds are never meant to be caged 
their feathers are just too bright 
  
Some birds WE were never meant to cage 
their curses make even the fresh air seem stale 
You’d say to yourself,” Oh! Why oh! Why did I ever engage 
these Godly creatures, these wise divine sage 
‘cause now I can’t feel my soul nor see anything in this bloodstained haze! 
No matter how wide I open my eyes 
I just can’t perceive my gaze!” 
You’d beg them and say,” oh! Lord of Lords, oh! Mighty God! 
Forgive me! Forgive this wretched form of life 
Bring me back my sight. Bring me back my sight! 
For now I have learned; For now I have understood what’s right!” 
“Some birds WERE never meant to be caged, 
Their feathers WERE just too BRIGHT !!!”
