A Caged Bird's Cry

I know why a caged bird cries
For her longing to sing never dies.
Within her heart a dream therein lies
For a sky beyond cages where every bird flies.
I know why a caged bird dreams
Of oceans and skies beyond what her world seems.
Within her eyes a spark of hope gleams
For a world beyond cages where the sun warmly beams.
I know why a caged bird hopes for more
Of a daybreak o're mountains where eagles soar.
A breeze floats 'neath her wings and beyond her cage door
To a world beyond cages where birds perch by the shore.
I know why a caged bird holds her head high
While other birds sleep, wide awake are her eyes.
Wings spread like an eagle, her destiny visualized
Of a sky beyond cages soaring towards the sunrise.
