Cold Iron Bars - Poem by Luis Steven

What's it like to live inside a cold steel cage
When you've given what you have to give, you're filled with rage
Mistakes are always relived, you just need to disengage
Free yourself from those black iron bars
You've never really figured out who you are
What's it like to live when you can't feel a thing
I say it's hard to sing with a broken wing

Even though the skies are gray
I hope to fly again one day

What's it like to live when you're all alone
The loneliness sinks deep into your very bone
You have nothing to call your own
Your life follows a course that is always wandering
'Is there something wrong? ' is what you'll always be pondering
What's it like to live when you're not the king
I say it's hard to sing with a broken wing

Even though it's dark at night
I still see a glimmer of light
Even though there's not much to say
Even though the skies are gray
I hope to fly again one day
I hope to find what I am seeking
And go back to spring
Before I had my broken wing
