Why The Caged Bird Really Sings

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

Why The Caged Bird Really Sings

The caged bird sings because
it longs for freedom
to fly and be with its own kind
and to know what life is really about
and be able to share it with a soul mate.

That's why the caged bird sings -
a song of hope and for all we know
a mournful yet beautiful sad song
of longing for the life
it was created for and dreams of having
instead of being cooped up in a cage
playing a role that was
never intended by nature
for it to have and live
as a captive show-piece
for a higher evolved form......

The ultimate expression of cruelty
to deprive another creature
of its natural born freedom.....

That's why the caged bird really sings!
