Zoo# daily prompt # season 4# attempt 30
If this whole world is a zoo,
Which animal are you?
The fierce lion or sexy tiger?
The naughty monkey or silly donkey?
Which animal’s traits you represent?
Are you a mixture of more than one?
In this increasing concrete jungle
All humans are like caged animals
Even worse than animals behind the bars
Who are actually helpless unlike humans
Caged in self created restrictions
Running up and down to get freedom
Without realizing no one else is binding us
This zoo is constructed by thoughts inside head
We are so lost in this mental slavery
That forgotten there is no lock and no key
Just inbuilt cage of our perceptions
And bars of illusions that are just fictions!
