A to Z Challenge: Jailbird

j

 

Sing a song of freedom,

Little jailbird.

Locked away

In a cage of regret.

Unable to fly,

Wings clipped by guilt.

 

Sing a song of penance,

Little jailbird.

Hoping to atone

For past wrongs.

Trying to forgive yourself

When no one else will.

 

Sing a song of hope,

Little jailbird.

Vowing to change

The path ahead of you.

Even as your footprints remain

In the path left behind.

 

Sing a song of freedom,

Little jailbird.

Until the day

You break out of your cage.

Or the day

When you sing no more.
