Birdcage

I was free once

Free to laugh
Free to love
Free to drink
And play
And dance
And make beautiful things

I was free to discover who I was
And to love myself
And to learn all the answers to the questions

Now I am a lover
And a mother
And I have reached the place I was meant to go
And sometimes
When lights and thoughts get dark

I just long to be free again
