Boxes and cages

little girl

Little girl take care

Don’t let the world tie you down

Shelve you in a box


Throw open those doors

Wake up from those vivid dreams

Make them come alive


You were born with wings

Spread them out- take to the sky

You were born to fly


Step out of the box

That will confine how you think–

Limit your world view


Beware of the cage

That barricades your thoughts with bars

Of doubts and fears


Find the pearls within

Shake off the grey shells of doom

You were born to bloom


Hoist out of your own petard
