Nothing is Impossible & We Live and Learn

Trapped here, in this concrete confinement
Ripped away from my home
Far away from my family
Spending each day here alone

Hundreds of people walk by each day
No one sees my predicament
Not one person stops to help me
So I must spend each night here alone

All I want is to fly again
Out into the sunset
To be with my friends and family
All I want is to be free
Don’t leave me here alone

I was inspired to write this piece by thinking what it would be like to look at the zoo from the other side of the bars
