Looking outside wistfully,
yearning to go stretch its wings.
Life has come to a standstill,
This bird in a cage sadly thinks.
There is no free will,
Every move being judged.
The bird should give up already,
But it’s spirit won’t budge.
It still dreams of a day,
When it can do as it wishes.
The bird in the cage dreams on,
To some day fly over these bridges.
