    • POEM: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 3:52:00 PM)

      This poem is very motivational and really illustrates the struggles that black people have overcome. Maya does a very good job at using personification with the caged bird and in a way it is a representation of her. One line that really sticks out for me is But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams. I find this very sad and it shows how much segregation and laws against coloured people caused suffering and pain. There is optimism though and a prime example of this is his wings are clipped and his feet are tired, so he opens his throat to sing. This is a strong metaphor of how black people will continue to use their voice and fight for freedom until it is achieved.
