I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings - Poem by Jamal Brown

I know why the

caged bird sings.

For the sign of

hope that tomorow

brings. I know why

the caged bird won't fly.

Because he rests on the soul of life

and if he

flies away he will surely die.

But tell me please, oh someone please,

please tell me because I just don't understand

why that one little caged bird cries.

Is he sad, is he lonely,

is he discombobulated?

That poor little caged bird is

lost on the road. Would

someone please show

him wich way to go.

I know why the caged bird sings.

For a sign of faith that tomorrow brings.

    is that bird a metaphor for something more, perhaps a person, perhaps you? (Report) Reply

    this poem paints a picture
    of a lonley bird being help prisoner
    but still looking on the bright side by singing
    nicly written
