Many years ago, a lonely spirit captured me,
And confined me in a cage so beautifully,
For all the world to see and not notice,
That I'm bound and lonely set not at liberty.
I dwell within a fortress with windows to peer,
Watching people pass by day after day,
Some stop to chat, and then off they go,
Leaving me alone, longing for a friend to stay.
I yearn to step out to commune and connect
Forge kindred affinities and meaningful friendships
To invite each other to mingle and explore
And be a friend who shares life’s kindred bonds
I've begged for help, but none takes me seriously,
Though there is a door, I cannot open, oh so mysteriously,
I long for someone to notice and look at me,
To break through the fortress and set me free.
For now, I must sit by the window and stare,
Observing the world to pass by outside,
Hoping that someday, someone shall care,
And release me from this lonesome divide.
