All I see are the bars on my cage.
All I can see is that which impedes my freedom.
I dream of freedom.
This concept, I do not know what it entails.
All I know is what freedom means to me:
Freedom means not being behind bars.
Freedom means walking when I want to walk.
Freedom means no more needles, no more tests.
Freedom means a thousand things.
All I hear are the mewings of others like me.
All I can hear is that which pains my heart so.
I dream of a time when there is no more pain.
I dream of a better life,
Where I am not poked and prodded.
Where I am not hurt and mutilated.
Where I am not the victim of some sick game.
I dream to keep the hope alive.
I dream to keep the fears away.
Escaping the darkness for one more day.
I have a dream…
I know I am not the only one to have a dream…
I haven’t the spirit left to fight,
But I dream for the light that will save my people.
I am a cat. I am a dog, a gerbil, a lizard, a mouse. I am
A hundred animals, but I am only one story.
I dream just one dream.
I hope just one hope.
I speak for all the thousands who cannot.
I speak because I have a dream. A dream of freedom and happiness.
