Song Of The Caged Bird - Poem by Nawal Salah

Oh how is it to be locked in a cage
and at everything around i gaze.
Why are these bars so strong
so i'll be here all long.
I wanna see the world around
but now only bars surround.

Caged in a cage
my life is a never ending maze
I wanna be free
and sit on a tree.
I wanna see the flowing stream
but none hears me scream.
I wanna see the world around
but now only bars surround! ! : (
