Closing The Cage Door
The cage door slammed shut when I was young.
The monster cat trapped me inside,
smacking his lips in anticipation of the kill.
This bird would fly no more,
Wings were not the only things clipped that day.
Dreams, hopes and heart were also ripped away.
No one heard the cries, or thought to listen.
Only one lesson was learned
Only one is still needed.
No one cares.
