    sing, caged bird, sing,
    sing until your harmonies shake your prison walls,
    your courage calls upon itself
    to make you believe
    that you are free
    they can’t hold you forever
    can never quiet your spirit
    and while right now, they may have you down,
    you know the sky’s the limit,
    and you’ll soar again, where you belong,
    bellow out melodies
    in the key
    of your inner prosperity,
    let them see
    that down don’t always mean out
    and bad ain’t how it has to be
    fly through the various chords of your song
    moving mountains, knocking down barriers,
    eloquently righting all the wrongs
    that currently clasp your shackles,
    but my, my, when those chains do break (and they will)
    they’ll feel that peace you’ve always possessed,
    every witness’ soul will quake,
    so no matter the pains you endure,
    the calamities that box in you soul,
    through the tragedies life brings,
    caged bird, just sing,
    sing to your heart’s content, and truly be whole

    Nice one to bring back Rich. This one, wow, when a strangled soul sings out for all it is worth, what a force to be reckoned with.
