Cageless Birds

Cageless Birds

Jonathan David & Melissa Helser

Standing on the shore of decision
Looking into the face of adventure
Desire to abandon all I know
What pushes me is rooted
Somewhere between
Misunderstanding and knowing
Knowing that what I want to understand
Is not within my reach
So I ponder my escape

Not knowing what lies ahead
Adventure in theory is
Is full of excitement
And bleeds with passion for life
Adventure in reality is full
Of breathless moments, silent nights
And wounds that leave
Scares of memory on a heart

Can I go the distance?
Can I give all my mind to get
What the messenger is saying?
Can I surrender my knowing?
Will I survive the humility of ignorance
To obtain a treasure that earthly gold cannot buy?
Will I ask the question of honesty
Even if the answer leads me to the land of repentance?
All of these thoughts flood my mind

As I stand on the shore of choosing
And in the distance of my wandering
I see with clear eyes a flock of wild
Beautiful birds

Swooping clearly in my direction
As if they see me and are coming for me
And how strange it is that their eyes are full of clarity
And the melody of their flapping wings sings out
We are coming for you

A song is waking up
Wake up, songbird
We want to hear your melodies
Songbird, wake up
Start singing

You’re not in your cage anymore
Bound by your shame anymore
The walls that held you in prison
The gate is flung wide open
Start singing cageless bird
