I heard this poem about a bird, that was stuck in a cage and couldn’t get free. It finally realizes its stuck and that its never going to be able to get off its chains. But it learns something even more important, it learns it has a beautiful singing voice and that it has a gift for singing, and so.. This bird starts to sing and when it sings its made happy, and even more so it brings happiness to the other birds around it, and anyone in its sphere of influence is made happier by the beautiful song of this bird. I just love the message that it conveys because so often in life we are put in situations that we cannot control, and life is about learning to make the best of the moments of the situation that your in. I love the quote, “God grant you the serenity to accept what cannot be changed, the courage to change what I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” So i based a song off this poem called “Song of the Caged bird, and in this video, it was all about creating light out of situation in the darkness. Because each one of us has the ability to use our talents and our gifts, our personalities and just the people we are to make the world a better place… To create light in situations of Darkness.
