A Caged Bird's Cry

Updated: Jun 10, 2019

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.
