A child inside
waits for an opportunity
to jump outside.
She wants to run
until she has won.
She wants to jump
to touch the sky.
She wants to dance
and take a chance.
But what stops her?

She looks around.
Her heart keeps her bound.
It wants her safe
from the world of thieves
It wants to hold on
and keep her from going beyond.
Life chokes her
So what does she do?

She smiles
but within her she wails
She has no one
and soon she will be done.
She will break away
and ruin the chains
She will fly away
At the break of day!
