I hope to change someones life one word at a time. Hopefully, it's a positive change and it's for the better, but any change at all is a step to an amazing new future.


Flightless bird

Caged sparrow

How is it you sing ?

Don't you need a friend?

Need someone beside you?

Someone to talk to?

Someone to share your song?





Flightless bird

Caged sparrow

How does it feel to be trapped?

Longing to spread your wings?

How does it feel to be in this golden prison?

Aren't you ever tired of being alone?



Flightless bird

Caged sparrow

Why can't I set you free?

You can fly away

Yes, you can fly away

Fly away and be free



Flightless bird

Caged sparrow

How is it you sing?

No friend around

No one beside you

No one to share your song

Locked away behind gold bars

Tell me

Oh, tell me how do you sing?

Just thinking about parents who control their kids every movement is sad because they have no life. They're flightless birds.
