I will always choose you

Should I not taste what nature gives?

Should I not immerse into the beauty that has

Left a legacy in my heart.

Should I not indulge in thy kiss?

Surely I cannot reject god gift

My soul is a philosopher

I cannot deny the wisdom your body promises

Why should I not study so I may learn?

I am given but one life to live, why not  live it

In your sweet embrace? And if my life is deem wasted

I choose to waste it by loving you.

It matters not how the coin flips for at the end of all things

I will always choose you.

Caged Bird by Maya Angelou Rip

Caged Bird

BY MAYA ANGELOU

A free bird leaps
on the back of the wind   
and floats downstream   
till the current ends
and dips his wing
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and   
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings   
with a fearful trill   
of things unknown   
but longed for still   
and his tune is heard   
on the distant hill   
for the caged bird   
sings of freedom.

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams   
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream   
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied   
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings   
with a fearful trill   
of things unknown   
but longed for still   
and his tune is heard   
on the distant hill   
for the caged bird   
sings of freedom.
