I know why the cage bird sings. It has nothing else to do.
All alone in its cage, its songs are of freedom of spreading its wings and being carried by the breeze, off to find the place they say is somewhere over the rainbow.
I know why the caged bird sings. It sings because it has to. TO remember the days without sorrow and pain, to remember that the sun is still shining, to remember that there is a future to be had.
I know why the caged bird sings. IT sings as if on cue. It has no control on when it can sing, the man with the fancy car, fancy house, and fancy suit does. and when the bird opens its beak. The man says be quiet.
I know why the caged bird sings. it sings cause it’s at the zoo. being laughed at and teased by everyone around him, like he is some kind of freak, like he’s any different. But he’s not you know. Why don’t you just give him a chance?
I know why the caged bird sings. It sings for me and for you, to remind us that there is still a chance.
That all is not lost, to not give up hope, to hang in a little longer, it will all get better soon.
