Caged Bird

Sitting in a run-down room

the floors never clean

the air conditioner forever broken

like a caged bird


Sitting at a desk

always doing homework

no time free

like a caged bird


Stress wraps around a heart

squeezes tighter and tighter

no refuge

like a caged bird


Forced to learn useless things

brain filled with information

that I know I’ll never need

like a caged bird


Heart full of desire

that will never be fulfilled

full of hope

that will never be realized


Full of dreams

that will never come true

Feelings locked away

like a caged bird.


Heart caged

mind caged

body caged

A bird that will never fly.


I pray they never catch 

my soul.
