CAGED by Vanessa Brandenburg

 

I am strong but caged

I wonder what way the wind will blow tomorrow

I hear the whispers of flowers

I see the clouds dance across the sky

I want to know how to be free

I am strong but caged

 

I pretend I’m in the woods

I feel the wind rush past my ears

I touch the bark on the old trees

I worry about what they’ll do to me

I cry at the thought of never getting out

I am strong but caged

 

I understand this cage is strong

I say that it can be broken

I dream of one day I can break it

I try to break this prison everyday

I hope one day I’ll be free

I am strong but caged
