Caged or UncagedI'm confused.
What are you trying to tell me?
I want to understand,
But I don't understand your motions.
Are you setting me free?
Your brown eyes are filled with sorrow,
Jerking a thumb behind you,
Your mother stands with her arms folded firmly over her chest.
I step out of my cage.
Looking up at you,
I wonder what will become of you two.
Your mother struggles with bills,
She can't afford to pay for me.
I understand that much.
I don't understand why you're setting me free,
Don't you love me?
I know you do.
You bring me to the back door.
I gulp heavily.
We had such a strong bond,
But now you're letting me go.
Don't worry about me.
I know you're trying to disguise it.
But your eyes give it all away.
I hop off your hand.
I flap my wings nervously.
I haven't used them in such a long time.
That doesn't mean I can't fly.
I'll watch over you.
I'll visit you.
