Fly

I Am a Caged Bird

Enclosed In Bars of Education

Judged by Social Standards

I Am Being Watched

By The Eyes of Vultures

I Speak of Flying

But They Cover the Walls

I Am Fighting

Fighting For My Freedom

Singing till My Voice Breaks

Flapping Wings till I Shed

I Am Breaking My Bonds

The Walls Fall

The World Flashes before Me

I Fly To My Destination

Battling the Winds

Fighting the Urge to Turn Around

I Was a Child of Bondage

I Am A Child

Of Freedom, Choice, Independence

I Am {Your Name}

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
