I’m confined in a box.
There are handcuffs around my wrists.
When will you let me out of the cage?
I’m trapped in a nation of freedom under the eyes of restriction.
When can I fly?
Would you please let me fly?
I don’t even know what color my wings are.
Because you never let me fly.
You wrap chains around my feet,
And attach a leash to my neck.
I feel like one of those kids that are held back by a backpack.
When will you let me live?
When will you finally live up to your words,
So that I can actually believe you.
When you say I’m old enough,
But you never show it.
You still treat me like a baby bird.
I need to fly.
Let me fly.
I can never learn if I never fly.
Please trust me,
When have I ever proven you wrong?
Please, let me fly.
