My Body is a Cage…

SomeĀ songs just get you. It’s like the deepest, most unreachable part of you is unleashed when you let that symphony consume you entirely.

No fear, no doubt, just falling.

Isn’t it beautiful? How we don’t let any person control our lives? But when it comes to music, we fearlessly sacrifice our minds, our souls, our everything.

Maybe, we are trapped. Despite thinking and acting liberated, maybe we are just prisoners within our own skin. Maybe that’s what distinguishes us from a soaring bird or a roaring lion.

Our captivity.

Maybe our body is, indeed, a cage within which the cries of our heart and soul are stifled and put to rest every day. We are just captives and this one fear that keeps growing within me every day is probably pushing that voice down even more. Because, yes, I believe that we are prisoners. But the question is, for how long?
