I thought that i could fly - like the birds so high in the sky.
But i never learned how to take flight, letting all the opportunities pass me by.
I was a blue jay in a cage full of canaries
A peafowl on the same island as peacocks -
Never truly belonging in the place i was apparently
Supposed to belong.
But, i got out of that cage and off that island
Learning how to fly elsewhere -
On the busy and mean streets of NYC
