Ada Wiam – Fly

June 30, 2014 | By | 6 Replies More

Cosseted. Sheltered.

Sometimes chained.

Buffeted by the

World outside,

Subjected to the

Frozen wind,

Some butterflies never

Learn to fly . . .


Ada Wiam is from India. She likes to think of herself as a writer. She’s a self-confessed book-aholic and a chocoholic who  loves using her imagination to craft a new world with new characters. Spinning stories is like a magic. She is the author of How I Won the Love Deal.

    What a lovely piece with haunting images. I too have often wondered whether I might yet learn to fly.

  4. AJ Roberts says:

    I found the message of your poem strong. It was beautiful, especially when you did not see the ending coming, even though you understood it was about flying. Well done.

    or even have the courage to fly ….. into those winds of chance and fate, too often too cruel. love the power of your poetry, such carefully chosen words in just the perfect order.

  6. lovely, powerful words. Often hard to put into words the reasons why we feel trapped, or even to realize that we are. Thank you.
