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

caged-bird-1

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.
