The caged bird

Hear my cries,
Set me free….
This cage is not
Where I’m supposed to be

Let me fly
In the open sky,
For I did no crime
To stay here inside

To you,
My chirping may sound sweet
But for me,
It is agony that comes out of my beak

My pleas go unheard,
And my tears unseen,
Yet I carry a soul
That is wise, hopeful and serene

I may be small,
My wings may not be strong
But someday I’ll reach the sky,
‘cos that’s where I belong!!!!
