Bird In a Golden Cage

You are a beautiful bird
Caught in a golden cage.
With a glamourous life
Surrounded by spotlights
Stuck on the center
Of the fame’s stage.

I am a free bird
I can fly wherever I wish
But I’ve given up my freedom
To stay beside you
For such a love you’ve never seen.

And now I hear my freedom calling.
Perhaps because
I see you’re used to that life?
Should I stay beside you for my love?
Or should I fly?

Yes, I know, my current song
Makes no sense, but,
Could you tell me, please,
What am I supposed to do?

I see your cage…
Beautiful…
Yet, a cage.

And I love you so much…
That I give up my freedom,
The gift I appreciate most,
I give up on it,
Just to give it to you…

Clara Maria Cristina Borges de Medeiros
