Do you Know I have a soul, said Bari?
What is a soul, said Jade? Its’ beautiful, so beautiful,
Inside my body, never too young and never too old:
So kind and gentle, its like Heaven I was told,
We cannot see, the soul that longs to be free;
not cage like you and Beea!
Jade! “Do you know I can fly, said Bari?”
How can you fly, said Jade?”
I climb the tallest tree, stretch my arms, close my eyes & pretend,
I am an eagle moving about gracefully, with the clouds & wind;
I am on top of the world feeling free, not cage like you & Beea!
Jade! Do you know I can sing, said Bari?” “Is that everything, said Jade?”
No! Here it goes, “I am a King, a Royal, Mighty handsome King!
I am a King, I am a King! I am a Mighty Handsome King!
Now you know I can sing, feeling free, not cage like you and Beea’
I know I was meant to be free!!! I Am free!!! Yes I am free!!!
I Am free and you too can be, said Bari !!!
