When the world

In which you

Live turns cold

You turn inwards

When kindness caring

And compassion hardens

You remain soft

And warm and

Woolly I know

I lived there

In a place

Of concrete steel

And plastic concern

Was by edict

But now once

Again living in

A world of

Love and affection

I still do

Shudder at touch

My heart remained

Free and only

My mind and

Body were caged

Give me time

Please to shake

Out my wings

I will fly

Yet once again
