A Proof Of The Restricted Existence
The birdcage that hung on the veranda
Was a proof of the restricted existence
Crushed dreams; absence
Of freedom and creativity
Which were inevitably
Compromised at the alter

Not realizing that

Is by nature a temporary
Thing and is bound to
Just the way the bird is caged in the above poem, A Proof Of The Restricted Existence, the same way you’ll find girls being caged in the confines of four walls of peoples’ homes.
In the poem, A Proof Of The Restricted Existence, the poet here compares the bird to a girl child who is never allowed to go put study and explore the world.
There is ample proof in the world where people of different communities(not named here) find immense pleasure and satisfaction in confining the ladies of their houses to kitchen and bedrooms.
