My age is less
Yet much I’ve seen
What people always say
They seldom mean
There’s line and lots of ’em
But a free bird has caught me in.
She flies and soars
High in the sky
She paints it like dream
What she saw with her mind’s eye
And people cheer while she does so
People, each and everyone, and I.
And in this bitter world
She’s an innocent child
Untouched by malice
For never she frowned, always smiled
Maybe life has been mean to her
Who knows the marks her heart has concealed.
Now all of this seems illusory
For she is not known to I
But rest assured
A free bird flies high in the sky.
