Sparrow Lines

My psychology says, “I’m a better sparrow”
Ridden adversaries from an open window
Caught a glimpse of a lifeless tomorrow
Set higher hopes to escape from sorrow

Prison pride, fight the tide
Of loveless avenues, worn-out shoes
Sparkle of diamonds, I treasured the most
I fly beyond the great horizon

Shared thoughts of limitless passion
Struggled to escape from sweet temptation
I landed straight on a higher ground
Discreet to analyze stepping-stones and stumbling blocks

Let me connect the broken walls of now and then
Make myself a hero, that’s what I’ll do
To this I’ll fly and spread my wings
To the north, to the south, and east and west

  1. My favorite lines:
    “Caught a glimpse of a lifeless tomorrow
Set higher hopes to escape from sorrow
    Prison pride, fight the tide
Of loveless”
