Songbird Sing


Glimpses of memories

Ride like rolling waves

across wide-open oceans

Flashbacks of days gone by

Whirl like dust devils

dancing across vacant skies


Trying to incorporate them

into the harsh reality

that is this day

could be as futile as trying

to convince the caged bird

he is free


His melodies

although masterfully sung

somehow ring hollow

when harmonized

with a strangled heart

struggling to keep time


Fragmented dreams

of flying free

across clear blue skies

wreak havoc on a life

compelled to witness

the world behind iron bars


Yet the songbird sings

his joyful song

His unwavering faith in

what may be…

what could be…

inspires every note
