Take Flight

Held behind these wires
I am caged but no more than you
In opinion, policy, silence.

My heart flies with a wing beat
Faster than that of any rising gull
Soaring to travel with a message
Around this land of the not so free

Calling for hearts to break the
Ribs of so-called democracy
To wheel, turn, take flight
Doing ultimately what is right
