BIRD SONG

You see me
You say you love me
You don’t even know me
You can’t compartmentalize me
You don’t understand me
So, you won’t stand me
But, you love me

While a bird may complement a beautiful cage in a palace
Its home lies in the trees
Its playground; the sky
I am a free spirit;
I choose
I am an eagle;
I fly.

I might be caught someday
Thrust in a cage
Possessed by one
But the elements
The air
The trees
The rooftops
The sands;
They own me for always
