Some situations  force you to act differently. Sometimes that’s the best thing for you,

even if it brings out “the worst” in you.

***

It was the first of many to come-

Finding myself where i don’t want to be,

doing what i don’t want to do,

being less than what is expected…

It was the start of a long journey of repetitive…

and I had no clue.

I was stuck –  a little bird who just wants to be free.

Instead, frozen in place at stages she couldn’t escape.

when a prisoner is motionless without a choice…

locked in, and robbed of her own voice…

she always finds a way to survive –

in retrospect, its what has kept this bird alive.
