Caged Bird, Song Bird

Caged bird

Maya knows why
the caged bird sings
Its wings are boxed in
but its voice is free
    You see

The perch its stage
the cage contains
restrains, inspires
the cries and trills
The wrongs and ills
write songs that long to fly
    That’s why

Songs in keys
of freedom
of hope, of rage
unlock the cage
open skies
    and rise
