Break Free

A butterfly spreads its wings,
An eagle takes flight,
A fish whirls,
Like them,
I must,
I break free.

A monkey leaps,
A dolphin flips high,
A cheetah escapes,
Just let go,
And break free.

I love the way that the animals provide an example so clearly to a human. Its very well written, for freedom is so necessary for us. And yet, despite the sorrow of confinement, the 'caged bird sings...'

Your piece shows how we all must not be shy or timid and we must break free from our timidness. It was very good!
