We Set Us Free – POEM


I kept her in a cage,
Behind bars, wings as good as broken,
Such cruel intention, to seperate freedom so brazenly,
By twisted wires.
In fairness, I am no devil
She is no martyr,
Because like everyone,
She keeps me in a cage too,
Only through unselfish actions,
Can we be free again.

Hearts heavier,
Wings stronger, by necessity.
