"I am no bird"

"I am no bird,"

That's what she told me.

"no net ensares me."

Those words are true. 


You strived to be

more than a bird, but,

You found yourself caught, 

defensless, trapped.


I'm not enough,

I'll never make it,

I can't escape it.

You thought this true.


You thought the net

was cast by your foe.

"I'm defeated", so,

you stopped fighting.


The truth was that,

You were the net that

kept yourself from that 

freedom (how, true).
