I thought

caged are those

behind bars

 maybe someone

inside tight shut jars

maybe people who live in a box

 in formal dresses and smelly socks

things are not always what they seem

caged are those

who are scared to dream

who buy happiness in expensive bags

and seek acceptance in their name tags

people who calculate people

and their worth

on not what they have done for the earth

but on how much greenery is in their pocket

so that they can wear their worth in expensive lockets

caged are those

who know that the world is a stage

and put on extra mask

who and why they are so

noone dares to ask

 caged are those

who do not understand freedom

and will find all the excuses

as to why It can’t be done
