the Persian Princess in MAYA ANGELOU


Caged Bird

by Maya Angelou

The caged bird sings

with a fearful trill

of things unknown

but longed for still

and his tune is heard

on the distant hill

for the caged bird

sings of freedom.


I’m in a cage, someone put me in a cage,  that person is me. Only I myself could put me in a cage and stop me singing and flying, not anyone else. Could you please break up the cage?

That’s why I chose this poem and did this painting.
