Why did you lock me in, why do you put me behind bars, should I not be free? Free to wander, to live my life like you, to make my own decisions, for good or bad. To spend more time with my family. To follow the seasons, to live my dream. Would you not feel lost, feel frightened if you lived my present life? Everything preordained, dictated by you who do not even seem to care.
I wish to live, to roam, to taste the air, to hear bird song, to taste life, to love, to cry – yes at least I can do that. You smile but I see the gun, will it point my way, am I to die before my time?
