This poem is very touching. It's about an honest story of a black girl
talking about her early life. As a girl from the rural South, she
experiences poverty, racism, and a lot of ignorance.

Maya Angelou is a very well know Poet of our time. Her writings of poetry
are indeed outstand. This poem is beautiful and the flow of the words
relaxing. Thank You Maya for writing and teaching poets the magic of
writing words...

It's kind of obvious what this poem is talking about.. Prejudice,
Discrimination, Racism, Fight for Freedom, Longing for freedom, Human
rights, I mean really if you just read it, it would all come to you and I
think this is really un-necessary because (forgive me) only an idiot
wouldn't understand what this poem is about! I mean just read it!!And Brain
you've really made a lot of effort to comment and I really admire what
you've written but I'd like to thank Philip for giving me ideas for my
essay =) thnx a lot

I know why the caged bird sings is a beautiful expression...I see the caged
bird as one with confidence and self esteem issues...Ms Angelou shows me
that he can sing, be heard and fly high...beautiful inspirational and
windsome. T.Y
