I don’t want to be a caged bird,
I want to be the bird of the forest!
I don’t want to be stopped from flying;
I want to shine high!
I want to be free from the conflicts of my mind;
I want to be free from the demons that chase me inside.
I want melancholy to be my strength!
I don’t want my mind break the spirit of my heart,
I even don’t want my feeble heart break my determined mind.
I don’t want my fears to cage me.
I don’t want my mind cage my thoughts.
I want my thoughts to be free like music!
I want to be free from within.
