The Caged Bird – inspired by Maya Angelou

6a9abd41240d7f0cb06ccce2b9342d69

The cat has my tongue, what has yours?

It holds my voice between its paws

Caged for years to be let free from bars

Only for the cat to stay in charge

I fear the cat, as I can never win

Now you know why the caged bird sings

C cunning, salty and raw

U you are lower case but stand above us

L lost, but loved by many

T take from the source

U you wonder where I can be found

R realising I cannot be bought

E experienced in robbing my

CULTURE

The cat has my tongue, what has yours?

It holds my voice between its paws

Caged for years to be let free from bars

Only for the cat to stay in charge

Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions – People Get Ready

Whilst I may not believe the suffering and pain many experience around the world will end, I believe we as the people must get ready. Get ready to open our minds to the corruption in front of our very eyes. We must arm ourselves with knowledge, as knowledge is power. We must help educate the next person who seeks knowledge. Whilst I may not believe that the evils of the world will stop their destruction, I do believe we as the people must get ready. Power to Us.

In my feelings….

Whenever I’m feeling a little low I reach for Gladys Knight and the Pips. ‘You and Me against the World’ is especially special to me, I could rewind it again and again. The whole greatest hits are like medicine to my soul, after, I feel rejuvenated and reminded of the good things I have in my life.  Sad songs have so much beauty.  As Gladys says ‘they underpay and overwork us’ but…..it’s you and I against the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvcJlHgC8SQ
