‘The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.’ Maya Angelou

I want my soul to know peace while it’s still on this earth

I don’t want to die with a troubled soul

More importantly, I don’t want to live with my soul so conflicted

When it’s time, I want to leave this earth free

And without my soul burdened by regrets

Weighed down by all that could have been

I don’t want to be just another sad story with an unhappy ending

Easily forgotten and replaced

I want to experience the moment my soul is freed

Like a caged bird finally freed and allowed to soar

I want to release the deep sigh that can only come from relief

Extending my limbs into a world I’ve never known

Where my body is no longer forced to be on the lookout

Always tense with worry of what’s to come next

When I close my eyes and drift off into sleep land

It’s vague and hazy

Like a dreamlike state

I imagine I know peace in my heart and soul

Through only a glimpse of what it might be like

It’s magical and beautiful

And completely gone before I’ve even opened my eyes

Only a distant hazy memory of what could only ever be a fairy tale

For a soul as tarnished as mine
