The bird represents a lot of us

This is a brilliant piece that tells so much of what many people are in
(situations) It may be personal cages or any other that prevent us from
experiencing the joys of life. It is so full of emotion and written with
skill, I love it a lot.

we all have a bit of cage

this poem reminds us that everyone has a bit of cage around them. Maya
suffered a lot growing up, but that suffering she turned into something
larger than its source - for this she is ultimately admirable

Buckshot Lefonque

I came to hear about this poem when I heard Buckshot Lefonque sing about
it. Both the poem and the song did move me greatly.

I know why the caged bird sings

Bland versifying that cannot compare with Gerard Manley Hopkins 'daregale
skylark' poem on the same theme.

I know why the caged bird sings

Its a touching poem that depicts a life of a prisoner and someone that has
freedom no one's freedom should be trampled upon.'You can reach for the
stars' the sky is the starting point .Thanks Maya.

I know Why The Caged Bird Sings

deeply and profoundly sad, yet beautiful.......the part about longing for
something you are unaware of, but longing for it anyway because some part
of you knows and has the imprint of it, really touches my heart......such
tragedies exist unfortunately.
