Caged

Bird singing
in a tree.
What is it like
to be free?
Do you worry
or despair
or are you happy
beyond compare?
Dog barks in
the night.
What has given
you such affright?
Is it a stranger
that you fear
or someone that
you hold dear?
Child crying
in a cage.
What has got you
to this stage?
Days and nights
without rest.
Parents doing
what they thought best.
