Pace yourself
Take your time
Slow down
Stay near.

I want to fly
To soar
To take flight

To escape.
To feel the wind through my hair
To feel the floating sensation
To be free

But as I am chained
I cannot see the sun
Feel the wind at my
Back

If only
If only
If only

If only I had the freedom of
A bird.
Not a pet bird locked in a cage
But a bird in the wild

Living off the land
Teasing hunters with
Promises of meat and fine
Feathers.

To be a bird that cannot be with held
A bird that will survive not
In a flock
But as a solitary creature

But I’ll get lonely.
If I leave everyone
Will still be chained and left in the dark

Never feel the wind
The sun
The freedom…

They need me. So I must stay in a
Cage of oppression.
Surfacing only to rebel.

Someday. As a whole
As a flock
We will all take flight

Feel the wind
The sun
The freedom
As a whole .
