<h1>CAGED BIRD - by Andi Hayes c. 2016</h1>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>I long for the day when I will be set free</strong></p>
<p><strong>And dream of what I know could never be</strong></p>
<p><strong>To soar above the trees so high</strong></p>
<p><strong>Of this I can only dream</strong></p>
<p><strong>You ask me why I cannot fly</strong></p>
<p><strong>And why I never sing</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>I don't know what it's like</strong></p>
<h2><strong>To feel the wind rushing by</strong></h2>
<p><strong>See what they've done to me</strong></p>
<p><strong>They've stolen my wings</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>Alone in my cage there's not much to see</strong></p>
<p><strong>Is this all I ever was meant to be?</strong></p>
<p><strong>A toy you've forgotten and discarded me</strong></p>
<p><strong>My life is just a dreary misery</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>I&rsquo;ve never heard a caged bird</strong></p>
<p><strong>I've only heard one scream</strong></p>
<p><strong>To never fly yet to have wings</strong></p>
<p><strong>Like a flightless, tortured thing</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>I don't know what it's like</strong></p>
<p><strong>To feel the wind rushing by</strong></p>
<p><strong>See what they've done to me</strong></p>
<p><strong>They've stolen my wings</strong></p>
<p><strong>I can only fly in my dreams&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
