The Caged Bird

I want to fly.
For too long
I have been a bird chained to its cage
For too long
I have allowed my wings to be clipped.
For too long
I have been paralysed by fear.

My feather they are heavy
But soft to the touch
Protecting my fragile heart.
Do not pluck them
But be tickled by them
Be tantalised and spellbound.
For they want to embrace love
To be outstretched
But not to smother.

Rather to soar.
To gain full flight
Be taken by the wind
And reach the heavens
Let me zoom, swerve, dive
Feel ecstasy, exhilaration
Let me be limitless
Let me catch the wind!
Let me fly!
