I Think

I think I know why the caged bird sings

For she herself knows that there is always an end

Not knowing which one song will finally welcome her final slumber

She sings to show that make your first note as precious as your last

She sings as a warning to all those of better faith 

Close your eyes to freedom and you will open them to grief

The sweetest song is not sung to liberate the body

It is sung to empower the soul

I think I know why the caged bird sings

For death takes the things that will make the best company
