And here I am – Promote Yourself


Shall I will I ever have a chance to be freed
That’s, only when my wings I need to spread

You put me one day in a cage
Can’t you see me today that I age?
Can’t you see me that I am weeping?
Can’t you see me that I am bleeding?

That day going my way straight to my fate
That I used to be free before t’was too late
Then I was nattering in my joy and glee
With No motive for my killing spree
Spending my joy from tree to tree
Having no foe, nor a prey I was to be
Safe that my carol of joy betrayed me
I was caught In a dream-catcher net
It was a gloomy day, that’s Ô! My fate
Mother Nature comes to me, ready set to rejoice
Full of fun, laughing of plenty to hear my voice
For, You don’t know why I sing, ah! me
It was the first day of Spring, for me
It’s only now but a prayer, from the bottom of my heart I sing
but a plea wish you hear me, that upward to Heaven I fling
That one day  you may let me free, before it was too late
It’s only Poetry, a lady  she knows before me, that said:


I know why The Caged Birds sing, ah me,
when his wing is bruised and his bosom sore
when he hit the bars, and would be free;
it is not a carol of joy or glee,
But a prayer that he sends from his hearth’s deep core,
but a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings
I know why the caged bird sings_Maya Angelou

  3. Thank you for Concidering featuring my poetry, Gillian Jane Sims, and thanks xtra Large Poetreecreations.
    Today is very special day and dear to me, because it is a bouble anniversary, it has been 5 years that I have started a blogging with WordPress, so I have congratulations for
    Initially I dedicated it to a cause , the protection a bird, wich is very praised in Algeria as a pet, to the point it became rare to find it in nature,and its environmental habitat became spoiled also. So I just gave it a, it was an absurd idea, maybe, to propose a Goldfinch day, as a holiday to celebrate, that is if you don’t know the value of the Concideration due to it in Algeria
    The funny thing is , in almost every household in Algiers, you can find a Mackeen, a goldfinch
    So to speak
    Thank you
