The Imperfect Freedom ~ Nsiki Gwala

Leaves rustle in the Autumn breeze,
Following the call of the wild.
First, peacefully floating and drifting
On a rivulet of cold air.

Then, soaring and gliding - flying;
Cutting through the air, rising,
Reaching unknown heights.
Freedom beckons from afar,

Yet he stands behind bars.

  1. The contrast, here, is very effective. One imagines his soul flying free, in spite of the bars.
