I Am a Bird

I am a bird, in a flock
Where I am not my own
And, even though I am own of many
I am still alone

And now I want to choose my path
and I know today's the day
but you have tied me down,
and I cannot fly away

Why won't you let me go?
And let me break this tie
Can't you see that this is my chance,
to use these wings to fly?

Interesting, but the end was a tad cliche. Switch it up a little, I would say.
