“I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” Poetry by Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps

on the back of the win

and floats downstream

till the current ends

and dips his wings

in the orange sun rays

and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks

down his narrow cage

can seldom see through

his bars of rage

his wings are clipped and

his feet are tied

so he opens his throat to sing.

Caged birds by Raymond Domnic Agius caged bird sings

with fearful trill

of the things unknown

but longed for still

and is tune is heard

on the distant hillfor the caged bird

sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze

an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees

and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn

and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams

his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream

his wings are clipped and his feet are tied

so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings

with a fearful trill

of things unknown

but longed for still

and his tune is heard

on the distant hill

for the caged bird

sings of freedom.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

like an over minded heart, that is fear filled, where do you depart, when your life is fear filled, great set of words, so many of us are prisoners of the bias of others, amen, hope your day shines, amen

😂🙌🕯️ Paddy thank you for your wise words. One has no fear 🙇 why! ” I am no one important, being the case One certainly tries to fit in. Being just a little peddle of sand today on the beach the waves kept crashing me on the rocks. Then the tide changed and back she went to her next victim. ”One” does weather the storm every moment trying to hold on. The moral to the story Paddy is : on WordPress in cyber ”one has a Spam Button ◼️ I found out especially for those who think I’m their days target. Gee I bet they are shocked to find I’m not available to troll me lol 😂😂😂😂 your advice was spot on Paddyb❤️🙇🌟🕯️🇦🇺🙌😌 Shalom
