Night Does Not Cage You


Imagine
the dark walls of night
do not cage you.
Its endless songs
can mesmerize you,
cool feathers
make you feel light,
gift wings to float
and take you to fairylands.

Imagine
your soft pillow is full of music
the breeze is still and chill
and you are sliding slowly
into a blissful abode.

Imagine
you are an infant
the angels are waiting
to embrace you
and augment low spirits
to make you fit
for yet another day's stunt
and you'll forget the indictment.

If it deprives you
you are deprived of many things
