Black Bird

I came upon a black bird
I found him in a cage
He was beautiful and large I imagine though he could not spread his wings
The cage was more like a prison than a home
I would visit everyday
And in time he came to know my name
Some days we would talk for hours
Others, I would just stare in awe at his majesty
He spoke of many things
So intelligent was he
Except when it came to one thing
He did not realize he was free
The door to his cage was always open
He could leave on his own free will
But he remains still
I pray one day he sees his escape from his imaginary ties
What a glorious day it will be to see him fly
