I am Eagle

Everything I want in the palm of my hand
But I feel trapped inside

A loving family of equal trust
Firm in belief and who they are

But I want to fly free
And soar above the clouds

Yet I am confined to these tight spaces
That I hate and fight and try to escape

And at the end of the day
When it is all too much

The thinking, considering,
Lying, the pressure

I just want to up
And fly away

Wow, this is beautiful.  I really love how you convey the pressure of family life in this poem.  The rhythm is good and I can't spot any spelling/grammar errors.  Excellent work!
