A Caged Spirit

Poor in spirit

heart of stone

the bird’s wings oscillated

feeling so alone

Trapped in a cage

no longer able to sing

begging for death

feeling a painful sting

Death comes

spirit is released

growing bigger

flying away from the beast

Flying through the clouds

stone begins to break

feeling wanted and loved

alive and awake

Spirit is healing

letting go of all hate

colors become brighter

getting closer to the gate

Entering into paradise

bird lands on a tree

joining others in song

he is truly free
