Birdcage

I’ve locked myself up,
High in a tower.
But there’s one little problem.
I don’t feel like a princess,
And I’ve thrown out the key.

My tower is dripping,
Filling up with my tears.
I’m afraid I won’t live much longer up here.
The staircase has fallen and crumbled to pieces,
If castle twirls down, my fate will be death.

I know you don’t care
I know you are busy
I know I my mistakes
I know, I know, I know.
But you know I’m up here to punish myself.

things are only as dark as you make them.
there is always beauty in every situation. look for it and you will see.
