She’s in a cage
in a safe place
away from the world
away from fear
away from everybody.
She’s in a cage
where she can live
the way she wants
Where she can live 
away from mistakes.
She lives in a cage
which is a trap
of being lonely
of staying neutral
of feeling safe.
She’s trapped in a cage
How can she go forward
when she cannot breathe
How can she fly when
she cannot spread the wings
Why should she sing
when nobody listens?
In the cage.

  1. The gravity of their earthbound
    situation be their prison
    with all of creation in which 🧚
    to spread those intergalactic wings 😎
