The Messiahs of Broken Birds

Some said they came down from the grey hills;

others called them children of the silent lake

A pair of kind smiling eyes and no other skills;

their warmth was genuine and not at all fake

Their few soft whispers rejuvenated dead souls;

it was said there was old magic in their words

They nursed their ugly wounds and gaping holes;

they were truly the messiahs of the broken birds


They were no wizard, no magic but simple love;

they shared with them only one common bond

They were broken, more than the wounded dove;

they cared for them with love and even beyond


No other mantra, hope was their one message;

life as they saw it, was unending ups and downs

Optimism was the ticket to secure the passage;

the only one way to tread the unknown grounds


They were prophets indeed, but prophets of loss;

their legacy was the dark night, no summer day

Their heart was all bitter, covered in green moss;

‘cause in the end, their birds always flew away
