Like a bird in a cage,
I flap my wings,
and try to be free.
But then I realize
I can't if you're
around me.
Can't you see
all I want is to be free?
I feel like I'm locked
in chains,
and I feel so much pain.
It seems everytime it rains,
it poors.
My inside feels as if
it has rotten to the core.
When I write I feel so free,
free as the breeze,
that blows through the trees.
I look at my past,
and I see I've come so far,
but it seems I'm still
fightin' this war.
I see the birds fly so high above me.
And I wish that's where I could be.
When I die spread my ashes on
the wings of seagull,
and then my dreams will be fullfilled.

I have been in that cage before....I'm happy to say I took flight

Next time he cracks the door,
do no more...
take your flight,
into the mystery of the night.

You did a good job on this, I can
feel the grief.
