Do you set your mind to wonder
why the caged bird sings?
Its gentle song from a captured heart
and helpless little wings.

This bird is like a child
who is encircled by sheer fight.
A little one whose heart is cold
from hiding in the night.

Each night they beg tearfully
their hope and faith is torn.
Monsters from haunted dreams
do not fade in morn.

Their love of life is fading
hope is growing weak.
The voices of firm reason
are what we all do seek

It seems tho’ innocence is gone
there is no hope for return.
A bruised heart is here to stay
escape is what they yearn

I say –  that bird who sings is sad
its song is one of pain.
It hopes to wake one morning
to spread it’s wings again.
