"Just one leap I need. A leap of freedom",
Said the little bird, with all her wisdom
Wisdom that had gone down the drains
When she fell for the cage, ditching her brains
The cage that was made of gold and pearls
It was the secret desire of a dozen girls
Girls that were pretty and wanted to play
Thought that the cage was from dough of clay
Clay that can easily be molded with their fingers and wrist
"A cage is a cage, even if it's golden", was it a quest?
A quest that was hard to unveil and demystify?
Had they thought the world was easy to defy?
World that has so much hypocrisy and rage
That's exactly what was lying in the cage
The cage that shined and attracted the bird
Little did she know, she'll never get to say a word
Words of excitement which chirpily she sang
Disappeared into air, poisoned by the fang
Fangs of the snake that hid beyond the glitter
Poisoned the bird's life and made it bitter
Bitterness, with her personality, had now intertwined
It had become a part of her heart, brain and mind
Mind that was once an epitome of cheerfulness
Had now become a house of boredom and dullness
Dullness that had encroached the bird's shiny face
Happiness had vanished, without even a trace
Trace, wish she could, even a little of her wisdom
While hoping from the cage, her "leap of freedom!"
