Like A Caged Bird

I can march but not too far.

I can soar but not too high.

I can croon but not too sweet.

I can giggle but not too much.

I can cry but not too loud.

I can clutch but not too tight.

I can hear but not too clear.

I can love but not too pure.

I can trust but not too sure.

I can endure but not too long.

How can I escape from these bars?

Just tell me now.

  1. Lower the bar, set your goals as the sky let not your environment be your cell. Only your mind can set your standards. Then only when u will soar with all them mighty wings. Knowing what freedom can do, not to define the cage u r in.

      1. That is why a reminder not just for u, me too. If u believe in magic, a human can soar not just here on earth, maybe even the stars beyond.

  2. the first to last line confuses me… I think it should be “how can I escape from these bars” (plural).. unless you had something else in mind that I am missing? we have a similar vibe to our writing so I think, my instinct, might, be right.
