‘The Girl in the Bird Cage ‘ By Erycka Dorean

Metaphorically speaking, one in a cage cannot fully express who they were always meant to be. A caged bird sings a different song than a bird living freely in its natural habitat. Just as a woman who was once caged by domestic violence, me, could’ve never lived to my fullest potential, raising my daughters peacefully, until I was set free.
