I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS

I know why the caged bird sings

To showcase her beautiful voice

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To cause its trappers some noise

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To feel the attention of a wishly handsome choice

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To tell the ‘cagers’ that they can break it all but not her spirit

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To register her existence in the minds of appreciators

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To at least release some strain of boredom because it can’t stretch its wings

 

I know why the caged bird sings

It has hope that someday, a knightly eagle will perhaps hear her voice

Like Maya Angelou sang and the world heard and rescued her

 

I know why the caged bird sings

To be as free as air when it finally stretches its wings

Be it in freedom or eternal rest.

Inspired by Maya Angelou’s novel “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
