Birds dream their dreams while flying
with closed eyes feel the air
create wind by flapping their wings,
echo transform sounds in air;
living with the seasons, measuring the days by the green
nature teaches them to grow up peacefully…

What do they fear from infinity?
When they naively are deceived by the glass that reflects themselves
mirrored in the other part of the world:
There where we people imprison our days
hide away from the endless horizon;
because we fly only in the imagination
with the wings of madness!

What do they feel when the coldness of the glass
quods their freedom?
As they migrate to limitless spaces
Their limit the blind alley where the human beings harbour…

Oh what a pride...
a pride till suicide
a pride to challenge the man who is so small in his essence,
the feathers flying in eternity
to prove that freedom is pride...
