A Caged Bird

Like a caged bird I feel

Who has forgotten to sing

Or spread her wings

Unknown shackles chain me

Stopping me to live my life

On my own terms.

I hear strong voices

From all around me

Of the people who matter

And those who don’t

Everybody telling me

What’s good and what’s not.

But somewhere

In the turning point of life

I have forgotten to listen

To the voice that matters the most

My inner self

My self.

It tells me to break free

From the norms that these

Unknown voices have bestowed on me

To break free

To fly high

To taste life

The way I want.

The caged bird wants to fly away in the sky.
