Will the Caged Bird Fly Free?



It’s painful to hope,

to believe that a caged bird

can fly free,

to harbor the dream

that if you reached out your hand,

you could touch

a world of possibility.

My hand is suspended,


knowing that in one more heartbreak,

it would all be ended.


So will I be

still ever reaching,

the world perpetually outside

of my grasp,

or will I seize my life

with one final,

startled gasp,

as my battered wings wearily

fly me away,

into the sunlight

and one endless,

glorious, new day.
