Watch the bird in the cage sing
with a dream in her shiny eyes.
The spell of the melody makes it
a matter of time till she flies.
The keeper lets her go with awe
too mesmerised by the talent he saw.
He heard a song, saw a plea
In the eyes that asked for liberty.
He turned around and saw the trap
In which he had so ensnared himself.
Today, the mirror cast a different light
The shadows creating awareness of his plight.
Watch out, O World! here I fly
I am thunder, you are the sky.
Cutting thru’ the depth and blue expanse
I breathe and watch my soul dance.
Come again, my dear, to enthral me
mock the cage, and open our hearts.
Do not fear, you can just be
For both of us, life now starts.
