     ~~ The Song a Caged Bird Sings ~~

Release these wings
  so I may fly
    among the Eagles
      in the sky

         where air is clear
           and big jets roar
             with winded wings
               skyward i'll soar

                 to distant places
                   i dream to see
                     easily taken there
                       on wings set free

                     behold my beauty
                       from flight of wings
                        and hear the music
                          a free bird sings

                  with feathered wings spread
                    toward heavenly space
                      showing the splender
                        of nature's grace

               so release me now
                 from this prison of wire
                   and behold the majesty
                     of my winged desire

           sunward i'll climb
             through clouds surround
               to a sea of tranquility
                 where freedom's found

      I'll chase the wind
        dance through halls of air
          and reveal my form
            while hovering there

upward i'll climb
   through an endless blue
     where only lark
       and eagle have flew

             and in the silence
               of the fading day
                 i'll bid you farewell
                   as i fly away

Enjoyed the poem, but stop ripping off Maya Angelou titles (sort of).
