You Could Cage a Bird

April 9, 2021


You can cage a bird,
Catch in in a trap and lock the door with a key,
Keep it as a pet,
But it'll still be free.

You can tame a bird,
Deprive it from the wild,
Teach it tricks on command,
Treat it like your child,

But the bird has it's own,
Independent grace,
Beautiful and mystified,
Swooping through it's space.

It's cage.

You can clip a bird's wings,
Throw the feathers in the trash,
But wings do grow back,
A phoenix from the ash.

You could cage a bird,
Take it to your home,
But will it be happy there?
With you but alone?

Stuck in it's cage.

    Such a beautiful message! Wonderful job! Definitely reminded me of Maya Angelou’s poem “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings”

    Re: If you'd like to CAD, you can go to the website called OnShape and get a free education account! Just fill it out and let me know if you have questions! I believe there are also free self-paced courses you can do to learn the basics; I've been CADing for a little over a year now. It's pretty cool- especially if you like math (which I love!)

    This message is so important- I really loved it. You wrote it really well. Have you ever read "I know why the caged bird sings" by Maya Angelou? It uses the same kind of symbolic approach but with a slightly different message. I think you'd enjoy it- it's one of my favorite poems :)
