The Unicorn in Captivity

I am in bars held by a tree
Alone, my horn and me.
Why are all the flowers free
And I am in captivity.

I am sitting here, trying to believe
That someday, someone rescues me.
But I'm afraid it's happening
Down at the end I'm used to it.

“It's not what you fear that comes to get you
but all the things that you do not expect.
The perfect animal was once free.
Don't paint yourself in a captivity.
