Pretty bird in a cage

Location

Pretty bird in a cage
trapped inside yourself
escape your imprisonment.
For you're overwhelmed
by something larger than you,
larger than life.
You cry at night
dreaming of freedom —
your great rendezvous
into a far away place.
Nightmares of your fate
hunting you
throughout the eternal day.
Break away.
Spread your wings.
Free yourself.
Oh caged bird, sing.
