Can a caged bird still sing?
A song of longing for the skies
For a world beyond this one
Away from all the questions why.
Does the caged birds still still fly
He flaps for all its worth
But little does he know
He had been chained since birth
Can a caged bird still dream?
He safely perches, safe as can be
Dreaming of an ocean
Of all that can never be.
But, is the caged bird sad?
Never knowing life beyond the cage
Never knowing a time before chains,
How can it know rage?
