Cry of the Innocent

Caged for a crime I did not commit
To the laws of men I must submit

Life in freedom I envisioned
Yet nobody heard; not one listened

How many times I pleaded ‘not guilty’
Tried to make them see reality

The sorrow I felt; the torment I suffered
To men none of these mattered

For them my voice was just cacophony
A nuisance they tolerate for money

Come spring I will be sentenced
All my screams would be silenced

So will be the fate of all my kind
Their lives forever and ever sidelined.
