The little yellow bird

The little yellow bird sings tentatively,
society had clipped her wings,
fear cages her,
ignorance shushes her.
All the little yellow bird can do,
is sing quietly yo herself.
A little yellow bird,
with clipped wings,
and a small cage,
cannot fly overhead, singing her song proudly.
A little yellow bird,
with clipped wings,
and a small cage,
cannot be heard by anyone.
A little woman with a yellow barrette,
pushed down,
afraid,
and ignored,
cannot change anything.
