Man Made Contradictions

I ain't asking for much, just to be set free. However that may be...

I'm just a spirit waiting to be set free.

In my shell, something like hell, with my kin

in a cell locked down waiting to be set free.

Letting thoughts overflow thinking why me? Just let me be


Point me to the scale that weigh the hearts of men.

Point me to the jail that's keeping my mind caged in.

Much love to Dr. Maya Angelou,

I'm paying closer attention to why the caged bird sings.


Give my mind a way out,

so I can free the rest of me from bondage.

Life was better being young and stress free.

Man made law contradicts the spirit because now

I'm a caged bird in this trap that was meant for me.
