Giving Up

Paying the ultimate price

Letting the dear loved one go

Open the cage's door and

Let the parrot soar

High up into the sky

But then one day

You'll ask me

Why did you let me go?

If you loved me so much

Why have you abandoned me?


(c)2004 by Franz L Kessler

I enjoyed reading this one, Franz. It reminds me of when I spent ages chasing a sparrow around our house (the cat brought it in). When I finally caught it in a chiffon scarf, then released it outside, it sat on the fence before flying off, to stare at me in amazement.

I think your poem could be as much about ending a relationship as it could be about releasing a bird... anyway, thanks for sharing.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't, this is a powerful poem.

hey Franz you hit home with this. I took my so called trained parrot outside, the little sucker flew off my shoulder and the rest is history. G

A meaningful question Franz and one I suspect I'll be asked by a loved one before too long.

Interesting write, Franz. Giving our loved ones wings often seems like abandonment - for awhile anyway.

Good question. So true so much of the time. Thanks for sharing this offering, Franz. Love and peace. Regis

When I first saw the title I thought of Borderline Personality Disorder, a very deadly mental disease. There is that old saying if you let them go and they love you, they will return. If this is about a parent to a child then they will understand. ~ Sara
