Breaking Free


The Cage is Open ...


Poem Copyrighted - Debbie Porter (2002)


"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."
~ John 8:36 NIV ~



The cage door now is open,
The chains are finally gone.
Liberty at last has come.
Our freedom has been won.

With brand new wings unfurled
We get ready now to fly.
Never did we realize
There was such a thing as sky.

Soaring to the heavens
A song lifts in our heart,
Until we feel an earthward pull
Right back towards the start.

Into that empty cage we fall
And feel the chains once more,
We wonder where our freedom went
What was the purpose for?

That taste of life outside the cage
That heady, sweet release.
Was it just a passing moment's grace?
A fragile kind of peace.

The world with all its cares and woes,
Our fears and doubts arise.
Even those who say they walk with God
Are quick to judge our lives.

With heavy heart and downcast face
We're back behind the bars.
Is this what life is all about?
The heartache and the scars.

That's when the Light comes breaking through
And at last we clearly see
That the cage door is still open
And this little "bird's" still free.


~ Debbie Porter ~
