I know why the caged bird sings

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
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.

The Caged Bird

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.      

Caged Bird standingThe free bird thinks of another breeze
and 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      

Caged Bird Back

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.  

I know why the caged bird sings by Maya Angelou                           

Beautiful poem…beautiful woman that wrote it.    I was putting the last piece of the poem in the post when someone (I don’t wanna name names cause that would hurt Jarath’s feelings) told me he had never heard of the poem….the name didn’t even sound familiar….such a shame ( I read it to him 🙂      

And all because I wanted to pair up the outfit and the cage.  The sexy Barely Legal outfit from Masoom is currently at Erotigacha (you can’t not want to go to an event with a name like that).  It comes in several colors (see the ad at the bottom of the page) but it was black for me…and looks just as good from the back as it does from the front. The cage is a pose prop from Dyer Maker, currently at the Black Fashion Fair.  Don’t they look like they would go together?  Then I saw the wings at We<3RP….and the new Truth hair with skelly hands…and ohhhh…the poses from Sari-Sari at the Theme Park right now…I may or may not be a shopaholic.  Topped off with my new favorite horns from The Plastik that I picked up at the FGC….BAM…a pic is born.
