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

down.


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

too long.


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.

      Wow did you get a new job?! Fantastic, not for the government I assume? Where have you been? I have been working on your hub. Never finished yet though. Good to see you, email me sometime and tell me about it!

      I know how it feels to be a caged bird and it's like a vicious circle; the stress goes up and that can brings depression and so you feel more trapped than ever! I am very happy for you that you were able to break free of the bondage and that you can start to fly again!

      I am super happy for you that you have a new job :-)

      God bless you and have a nice peaceful evening!

      PS : I love your choice of pictures! Very powerful!

      I am so pleased that you got a new job, and yes I totally understand what you mean, we do all get like this sometimes, it gets us down, we get depressed and then suddenly there is light at the end of the tunnel, so this is wonderful!
