His Little Bird - A Poem by Bilqees Ebrahim, Asma Bux, Amina Moola, Aliyaa Bodi Bassa

He called her his darling

His little bird

But then he cut off her wings

And listened to the screams,

That no one else heard

He said she was too brittle,

Too fragile to fly

When in reality he plucked her wings,

And left her to die

Her friends tried to open,

The cage on her heart

But he stole the only key

And tore her apart

But now she’s free,

To flap her wings

So proudly, she will soar

And let her freedom sing
