Free the Bird………

Maya_Angelou_bird_quote_grande[1]

Free the Bird

From its cage of Illusions

No net ensnares Him, He is born free

Whatever comes in its wake?

He has to overcome

Be it darkness of the gargoyles

That are ripping his wings apart

Or the deep forests like tall goliaths

Are waiting to strangle him

Wingless, broken he can never fly

Once he sees the guiding light

With a mighty push, He tears open his wings

Cutting through the maze of tentacles

Once he is set free, he leaps

On the back of the wind

And floats downstream, dipping his wings

To fly like an eagle fearlessly

Above the clouds of Joy……………..

  1. Beautiful.

    I couldn’t help think of Dunbar’s “Sympathy”–where Angelou got the title for her memoir: “I know why the caged bird sings”. The cage in “Sympathy” is also of delusion, but of a delusion imposed: namely, the majority imposing it upon the minority.

    I love the way this poem plays with the different birds of the sky and the different ways they fly.

  2. Free the Bird….
    Free the Mind…
    Its the same to both.
    We are also born free like the Bird,but unnaturally we put ourselves in the cage, may be that is why Man wants to see the Bird in the cage.
    The same words applied to us, so shall we fly above the clouds of joy.
    This is absolutely nice 👌👍
