    The Cage Bird Cried
    Jacqueline Amos



    Why do you cry cage bird?
    There is nothing holding you within your cage,
    Let thy wings spread an fly away.

    I cry not for thy self,
    I cry for the love of man,
    I cry not for thy space,
    I cry for justice for all,
    I cry not for my safety,
    I am the wings of the lord.


    I cry that man restore love upon the world,
    I seek not freedom,
    but freedom of mankind,
    I seek not food,
    The food of the earth,
    I seek not understanding,
    I can fly if I will,
    I sit upon the cage,
    And wait for thy God.

    There is no cage can hold me back.
    There is no weapons to take thy life.
    I the humble and the meek.
    I the voice of spoken words,
    Listen as I speak.
    I cry not for my self
    The paradise of God lies beyond the grounds.
    The blinders of earth,
    Have blinded the lifeline,
    Rebirth I wait for thy almighty
    To bring me home.
