the lions cage
a world behind bars
try to get to the next stage
dying of old age
behind the smoke of handmade Cuban sigars
staring at the outside
sadness reflects from yellowed blinking eyes
dancing without pride
avoiding the heartless smiles
when the lion is asleep
the wind cools the moist heat
with a cold hearted beat
alone on an empty stage
where the limelight darkens happiness
as time passes by
this is all there will ever be
if only the lion could fly
and look down from an oak tree
his ferocious dreams cut through
a world of captivity
to find there way home
leaving him all alone
