A Caged Bird that flew away
I feel like a bird whose
wings have been clipped.
Almost two years I was caged,
wanting to be set free to fly
across the sky like I use to.
Things are no longer like they use to be.
I'm mentally grounded, physically drained
my nerves almost wrecked, shaking inside
like a little child left in the rain. There were
no longer happy days for me as the
shackles & changes of the government held me
Only God knew why i never went insane.
My disturbed emotions all tangled up inside,
perched on my heart weighing it down heavily.
The grief was shown upon my brow and every
where i carried it around. I tried to explain the
way i felt but to others it just did not seem real.
I tried to adapt to being a caged
bird ,and procrastinated making
a step of faith to break loose
from this cage of bondage for
I saw other birds setting themselves
free and as time rolled on I wondered
when will my time come and where would
I be. Finally on December 5th 2013 I was
fed up of the bars that had so long en-caged me.
The oppression that kept me heavy, the stress
That made me weary and the depression that
made me angry of who I had become “ a cage bird".
With the help of God I was able to set myself
free and God was so good to me I flew right
away “ got a new job”............ I know why the
caged bird flew.
