You've tied my feet and clipped my wings
I'm trapped in this cruel cage
"You're safer in here dear llittle birdie-
"With us to protect you from the dangerous outside world"
The blanket of your love that kept me warm now suffocates me
I would break these bars if I could help it
My eyes gleam with anger and resentment
I no longer want to be a slave of your will
Have a heart, set me free
Let me stretch my limbs and embrace a new morning
Let me explore the world for myself
Your little birdie is ready to take flight...

P.S. This post has created a little confusion with someone I shared this poem with. I am not really talking about a bird here. I'm talking about me.
