If you lock a canary in a cage,
it will not sing a single song.
It will beat the cage,
till its little heart bleeds red.
It will beat the cage,
till it ends up dead.

If you lock a canary in a cage,
it will yearn for open skies and sunny days.
It will beat the cage,
till its little wings bleed red.
It will beat the cage, till it ends up dead.


....Not recognizing you suffocated and squeezed it,
....Not recognizing its existence, you ceased it.
