Caged souls


cannot sing

lying in wait

for release

whilst in the

midst of their

dark season

of healing

and their

broken wings

are mended

to fly

far and beyond

the pain that

took their life

and become

the lyrics

that sing

to the other

caged souls

that are

lying in wait

lifting their spirits

and filling them

with hope

to carry

them through


it is their time

to fly

far and beyond

the pain

that killed them.
