She cowers in the corner
Longing to stretch

Alas these bars contain her
Never to set her free

She approaches the opening slowly

Gone were the bars that contained her
Gone was her loneliness

Free she was free
Free to feel the wind on her wings

Free to fly into the sun
Free to live

But it has been too long
She burns beneath the sun

From her ashes
She rises again
