Sweet little feathers locked in a cage

Desperate to fly free, this life is a daze.

All I have to do is look through the metal bars

And imagine a life free of being free from harm.

What joy exists without danger,

Hate, stressors, or anger?

What pleasure is there in a life filled with nothing?

What I wouldn't give just to have my life mean something.

I wish I could just fly away,

Leave this cage and for once see the light of day.

I see the lock on the cage I am within,

A lock with no key--here forever I am hidden.

My lungs are unable to fill with air;

There is never enough room for myself and I to share.

I watch all other things living free,

How I desperately wish that could be me.

I wish I could just fly away,

Leave this cage and for once see the light of day.
