Cage

Her biggest failure was
Not believing in herself
She doubted all her talents
Kept her emotions on a shelf

She longed for a happy life
When all she’d do was gold
Unlike her tarnished deeds today
She’d show that she was bold

Not realizing that she was
All that she wanted to be
She only needed to open her cage
And let her soul fly free

But the cage was very strong
She’d built it with her doubts
All she needed was to believe
To let herself climb out

And so she languished day by day
Not letting her light shine
This should be a lesson
Don’t to your fears assign

Importance enough to build walls
Against which you feel lost
Remind yourself that your are strong
You will rise at any cost
