Mike van de Pol - leeg

I feel so empty,
don't know who I am
or what to do
to feel alive,
so colorless
and without meaning

till a bird
lands on my shoulder,
whispers in my ear
that I am beautiful
and perfect as I am

and then it feels
as though
the metal of my cage
( I built myself )
and I am free,
free as the bird
that landed
on my shoulder
