A Free Bird

A free bird I am.

None are more hopelessly enslaved

than those who falsely believe they are free.

Outside you see an opaque glass 

with the image of a bird.

Whereas inside the eight walls of a prison,

a man with confidence,power,fear-human

Shackled by orthodoxy

Is breaking free
