I sang in great halls and cathedrals.
In temples and opera houses -
My voice, I trained and developed
My songs, I wrote and recorded -
Then suddenly I sang alone (at home)
While others were going out cheerfully
Invisible walls trapped me,
Prevented me from joining.
People covered in sweet toxins
Synthetic, plastic glues
Without care for human safety
Faux fragrance industries grew.
Invisible walls cut me out
Sealed or barred my way
My Song only grew and expanded
Only deepened - and changed.
Then Nature heard my voice
A sound that touched the trees
My Soul became the Song -
Combined with Valley, Hill and Sea.
My Great Hall - All of Creation
My Voice - All of Me.
I am a “Canary”
