The credit for this poem goes to the already-created poem Caged Bird by Maya Angelou. Angelou’s poem inspired me to write a similar version, but I wrote it around my emotions living in an eagle’s body.

A free eagle lifts the sky

On a current of bliss

Light feet that float

To a world we miss.

A caged eagle sits

In a corner of hope

With weighted chains

No way to cope.

Inside he sings

To feel at home

Inside he bleeds

Left and alone.

A free eagle is seen

With a happy charm

Until the curtains are opened

Where he seems so far.

A caged eagle is trapped

Lost in its mind

Waiting for the time

For it to be alright.

Till he looks to the sky

With oh a great light

Can’t wait to say goodbye

To this sad night.
