Growing Free

Never in my life have I felt so free
To fly away from the cuckoo’s nest
All my life I’ve lived caged away
Dreaming of a better world

Lost in the sights
Mesmerized my the sounds
Hypnotized by the smells
Lured by the tastes

I never imagined life to be so great
I never thought I could do so much
All my life I have been told
I would never be more than an ant to a boot

But with my freedom also came fear
That I was only an ant
You were the boot

So though I grew wings
And learned to fly away
I always returned
To this cage of mine
