Carpe Diem

we are players, the world our stage 
carpe diem is our one line
like singing birds trapped in a cage 
watching clocks and counting time 
one day the cage door will open wide 
to spred our wings and fly away 
to find a breeze which we might ride 
or wait until another day
should i be tempted to leave this place 
of bars and perch i sit and weep 
or float away with unseen grace
and find a nest somewhere and sleep
we are players, the world our stage
carpe diem is our one line 
lets all break free of this worlds rage 
and begin a better, more loving time.
