Inspired by a stressful job and finding the strength to keep going through all the other things being whirled around in the winds of the hurricane of my life at the time.

And Yet Still The Caged Bird Sings

 

 

 

Eyes watching the world

Glass windows stained and clear

Taken the objects life hurled

With and without fear

Been through all these things 

And yet still the caged bird sings

 

 

What beauty to be wind

Whistling through the trees

On a hot summer's day 

To be a nice cool breeze

Never able to flap its wings

And yet still the caged bird sings

 

 

Always an opaque prism

Wandering through the fields of the mind

Always a spiritual schism

Hope can be a hard thing to find

All the heartbreak love brings

And yet still the caged bird sings
