Poem – Caged Bird

A caged bird sings in the darkness

Falling upon deaf ears

Losing feathers from flightless wings

The cover has been forgotten

It stays collecting dust

The caged bird only sees the night

Though the darkness springs imagination

Of soaring above the trees

The darkened song bird

Can almost feel the breeze

The feathers that have fallen

To the bottom of the cage

Are all but forgotten

As the bird floats upon its melody

Living for only for each note

Until the last one is sung

Only then will the caged bird be free
