Caged, yet hopeful
He fluttered around the walls
crying and calling out for help.
He was pitied, he was cared for-
Yet no hand would break him free;
still, with hope, he carried on-
"Not today, perhaps.."
The day dawned-
The walls were broken
And the cage, blasted to dust and smoke-
He fluttered on,
Around imaginary boundaries;
crying and calling out-
"Help me fly away..anyone..."
