What a paradoxical being a human is!
It craves for freedom when in a cage
And makes a cage when it’s essentially free.

One bar of this cage is their workplace
And diligently it works on this everyday!
Another is it’s so called home
This bar is the heart of our comfort zone.

Most of the others are this virtual world
Where every second a new lie takes birth.
The strongest bar yet, is our fellow human beings
Who bound us with the strongest of strings.

And in these bond it will spend all it’s life!
Adding to its cage a mesh of worries and strife!
And then when the soul will wish to leave
It will have but one regret, but one wish
To go back and free itself, from all the bonds so carefully made
And LIVE life not survive each day.

  1. Keep me rather in this cage, and feed me sparingly, if you dare. Anything that brings me closer to illness and the edge of death makes me more faithful. It is only when you make me suffer that I feel safe and secure. You should never have agreed to be a god for me if you were afraid to assume the duties of a god, and we know that they are not as tender as all that. You have already seen me cry. Now you must learn to relish my tears.

    1. The caged bird sings
      with a fearful trill
      of things unknown
      but longed for still
      and his tune is heard
      on the distant hill
      for the caged bird
      sings of freedom.
