I tried to cage the muse I tried to cage the silverbird I tried to hide the puma I tried to hide the eagle I tried to hide the art in I I tried to pen just but a little The cumulative pressure The cumulative effect I almost lost I.. Hitting the ground without a chute Hitting the ground running The guy on a wing and a prayer Jehovah you are Elshaddai You are My provider I do now soar unhindered I always want to soar free I love the wind on my face The scribble of mine pen Gives I unrivaled joy For art should never be caged Its akin to stifling out The very breath of life Its akin to forfeiting life itself An artist minus the art .... Is like a zombie.. No flames of life.. No sparks of love.. An artist free your soul Heed to your calling Free thee from the chains Don't sell thine soul To an-others path Roy you are but A resource beneath A cloud.. #Liberty Systems Code 254 Ackmi Luis
