You have the power to live another Childhood, so open up the door leaving back your doubts.

Deep in the corner of the room
Stands a cage with a bird within
Frolicking around, she silently screams
You may wonder what this means
No room, she cannot stretch her wings
And soon she will no longer sing
Where is her freedom, where has it been
Screaming now, for she is closed in
Her wings will bash and hit the wall
Broken and in pain this is her fall
If you never set free what you capture
In pain she will die shortly after
And this will be her last sad song
As you know what you did was wrong
Breathing in and out her last breath
Will you cry upon this sad death?

This is about confinement, I don't get out as much and my freedom is on a leash, a limit

We all need our freedom and space. Without freedom we r nothing more then that of a prisoner. Thank you for painting that picture

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
