I begun life in prison cell,
as dark as a bottomless well,
with no difference between day and night,
i cuddled myself tight.
Awaiting the day of bailing,
that i will be filled with joyful wailing,
and walk in the countryside,
with heaven on my side.
Only to be released and end up captured,
suckling milk with no bother ,
a new born baby in the arms of a mother.
