Caged Bird Quote

Broken Chains

Broken Chains

Persist to Resist

Resisting the rules,

resisting your unruly

rules that are built for

me to tie me down in chains

to mold me into

someone else that you accept

which is not myself

for me to defy you would

be my victory

or better yet my downfall

from your hailing grace.

Amazing grace look how sweet

the sound is from the

top of the mountains to the

birds perched on branches

humming nothing but sweet hymns

of when the caged bird

sings, spreading their graceful wings

and in formation

standing proudly tall they sing

never shall I be

longing to be under you

as I always strive

to be me, undermining

your captivity

so long are the days of you


my substantial and innate

thoughts as to who I

can be with out you, good bye

still standing up right.
