The guy looking in on you, like a wild animal in jungle or on open plain, is struggling day to day to survive and feed his family and /or just himself. There are countless frustrating occurrences and unforeseen events at every turn. Each day could be a nightmare of misfortunes, simply mundane or altogether orgasmic in nature. The man outside cage has no real control over life; heís simply one piece, a pawn, on a gigantic chessboard. He has no guarantee of security or stability as he makes his way through each and every day. In his world there is no real security or safety. But, his world is open to travel, and motion. He can move from place to place to seek out new opportunity, bars that hold him are metaphoric in nature not solid in composition. Every day is a lesson in survival and some days are better than others. There are many that donít make it and, like a captured chess piece, are taken out of game. Those are stakes, life and death, struggle to survive.
Which is better, gilded cage or dangerous freedom? That is a question best answered by each individual.
For me, I only want a brief time out from struggle, just a few days to relax and get my wits back. There are times when view from inside of cage is appealing, but loss of motion, my freedom, is too great a price for security. But thatís just me, one individual.
