Setting Free The Little Black Bird...

and this i remember
when i was yet a young boy
in a far away village

i caught a black bird
in my handmade trap
and it was trying to
escape from the hold of
my hands,

at first i liked to bring it home
and show to father
but then i looked at its eyes
begging for mercy to be
set free

and i heeded to its flee
i released that little black bird free

x x x x

it is the same now between me and my body
this trap and this soul that begs now to be set free
this little black bird begging for mercy
it shall be set free
that young boy understands
it is this body.

Setting The Bird Free

after you have set the
bird free
look!
your heart grows wings

and too
it starts to fly
high, and higher in
the ever blue skies.

Setting The Small Fry Free

a small fry
is caught the
net with a very
fine mesh

you are the fisherman
who catches the small fish
in your hand
and then you sail back
to the sea
setting the small fry free!

Setting You Free

i sit here with a gavel on hand
dressed in black
you fear me for what i can do
for i sit in judgment of you
i look at you
and find this tranquility of your
spirit and i humble myself before
you, an innocent man
silenced by the cruelty of the laws
of his brethren
and then i bang the gavel
setting you free and then
i get down from the heights of
man's self-made bench
glossy yet so cold and then
i shake your hand
it is warm and
it had long been
thirsty.
