Inner Selves

We keep our inner selves

In a cage so long

That they begin to forget

Their native song

They forget the duty they knew

their duty to the world

The duty they felt

When we were boys and girls

So stay in touch

With your inner self

It knows more than you realize

And if you’ve locked it away

Throughout your days

It’s there waiting to fly

Give it space

To develop and grow

So you can see

what you already know


and if you feel scared

and like you’re not prepared

look deep within your soul

before it begins to take a toll


and see that your spirit and I

are here to help you fly

So spread your wings

And take flight

It’s going to be a brand new night
