I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings


This link is for a poem by Maya Angelou,
http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/i-know-why-the-caged-bird-sings/

The poem in itself is great, but what I found more astonishing was my
own thoughts generated from it. I automatically identified myself with
the free bird. And then I looked out the window and then I thought how
much I don't want to be sitting in this chair, at this desk, in this
office and suddenly realized that I am NOT the free bird.

Then I remembered Robert Kiyasaki's book "Rich Dad Poor Dad" where he
talks at length about financial freedom and that convinced me that I
want to be a free bird but I am not; not yet.

I would like my readers to take 2 minutes and read this poem, I can't
post it here, not having the copyrights. I'd really appreciate it if you
share your thoughts about it here.

What a beautiful poem, are we ever free to do what we want? There is, & always will be an element of a caged bird in us all. All we can hopw is that we appreciate what freedom we have.
