Gilded Cage

She sat in her cage looking at the

 World through rusted bars

Her wings clipped

Freedom locked away in a cold barren


Incarcerated inside her mind

Thoughts of sovereignty vanished

As mist dries with the rising sun

Placed in the position she was in

No one came to her rescue

They stood outside her cage

Laughing and jeering

She hung her head in defeat

What was the use of pretending?

She was something she wasn’t

Was never meant to be

Caged in her defeat she became

Her worst enemy

Love in her heart died with

The beautiful song she used to sing

Early in the morning as the dew

Kissed the earth

She has accepted her fate

Locked away in her gilded cage
