White Bird

Beautiful white bird

Trapped in an ebony cage

You yearn to soar on open skies

A sight to see for all sore eyes

 

White Bird

How do you cope?

Knowing that you’ll never forget

That in an ebony care you’ll always be

Filtering the view of your magnificence for all eternity

 

White Bird

How are you assured?

How when you’re despised

Simply by the color of your cage

 

White Bird

With its back to the wall

Hoping the next person that comes through

Will see past the hood to see you

 

White Bird

Stretch your wings

For all creation to see

Fly away on glossy black feathers

Leaving behind your land bound tethers

 

White Bird

Beautiful white bird

In this poem to you

I write what I know is true

 

Black cage

Black skin

White bird
