I know you tried to set me free,
when you thought it was right for me,
but maybe it's not good for me:
a caged bird lives in harmony.

A caged bird lives- though captively-
without a fear- though certainly-
It's freedom wasn't there to see,
but it lives in security.

A caged bird shouldn't be let go,
for fear that it will soon be shown
the things it never knew to know-
a caged bird thrives on love alone.

This poem is thought provoking.
All of my life I have believed that all things would be better off if they were free,now I read your poem,and I wonder.
This is good.
Continued success

This is so powerfully symbolic and deeply meaningful, Charlotte. Great poem. I so enjoyed getting into it. Love and peace to you. Regis

Well I got the point of this one. My little bird is perfectly content within his home. I have had him now for eight years. He is a intelligent bird. And I suppose he knows that he is loved because of the songs he sings.

The Platinum Rule And Other Contrarian quotes by Tuchy (Carl) Palmieri

The Platinum Rule is a book that takes the other side of our most cherished sayings and proverbs. It is the result of years of reading and recording words of wisdom from the ages..
