PINNED UP IN A CAGE

Starlet Williams

PINNED UP IN A CAGE
NO WHERE TO ESCAPE
JUST ABOUT ALL I CAN TAKE

EVERYBODY PULLING ME ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
DO THIS ……DO THAT….. I NEED NEED NEED
I’M BEGINNING TO NOT BE ABLE TO SEE CLEAR

A WOMAN ALWAYS HOLDING IT DOWN FOR OTHERS
NO MATTER THE CONSEQUENCE…… BUT BET NOT
NEED A FAVOR ….THE DOOR WOULD BE CLOSED
WITH A MENTION OF A DOWN STROKE OF THE WORD

WORKING …COOKING….CLEANING…. ATM MACHINE … COUNSELOR
CONFIDANT ….PROBLEM SOLVER FOR EVERYONE BUT MY OWN
BUT SOMEWHERE I FORGOT ABOUT ME WITH SUBCONSCIOUSNESS
I KNOW … I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE TO AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS RECKLESS TRAIN BUT METAPHORICALLY I LET MYSELF BE PLAYED

BUT TO KIND HEARTED TO COMPREHEND ….
TIRED AND MENTALLY STRAINED
FROM BEING USED OVER AND OVER AGAIN….
IT’S LOOK LIKE ITS TIME FOR A BETTER PLAN

TIME TO CLOSE MY EYES TO VISUALIZE
ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE AND GET BACK TO BEING ME
BEFORE…. I’M KNOCKED OFF MY FEET

IT’S COMING IT’S COMING I SEE IT
CLEARLY …NOW WHAT HAS TO BE DONE
THE WATERFALLS MUST COME
SO I CAN GET MY REST ON AND ON AND ON

CASCADING ….. ROARING… WITH RAINBOWS SPARKLING
FROM THE SUN .. SHE’S GOING TO BREAK DOWN THESE
BARRIERS TO TAKE ME TO MY OASIS

I KNOW MANY MAY THINK ITS SELFLESS AHHHHHHHHHH BUT
WHO CARES …. TIME FOR THE MIST OF THE WATERFALLS TO COME
TO PURIFY ME BACK TO THE WOMAN WHO KNOWS WHAT SHE
DESERVES …THEY HAD ME BENT FOR A MINUTE
THEY REALLY DID

SO EXCUSE ME WHILE I LET THE GREY CLOUDS
THAT CIRCLE ME… BE RINSED AWAY AND LET MY
MIND…BODY…SOUL….OF LIBERATION COME BACK TO ME
IN THE STRONGEST WAY
