“In this world they are different kind of birds,

Birds that fly chasing the sunset,

Birds that they sing in the morning to welcome the sunrise,

Some birds are trapped in the cage they want freedom,

Some birds can fly some don’t,

Some birds don’t want to freedom, they prefer to be in a cage,

Some bird the like just to sit out on the tree and just sing and sing and sing….

What kind of bird are you?”.  -CN-
