The Cage Bird Cried
Jacqueline Amos



Why do you cry cage bird?
There is nothing holding you within your cage,
Let thy wings spread an fly away.

I cry not for thy self,
I cry for the love of man,
I cry not for thy space,
I cry for justice for all,
I cry not for my safety,
I am the wings of the lord.


I cry that man restore love upon the world,
I seek not freedom,
but freedom of mankind,
I seek not food,
The food of the earth,
I seek not understanding,
I can fly if I will,
I sit upon the cage,
And wait for thy God.

There is no cage can hold me back.
There is no weapons to take thy life.
I the humble and the meek.
I the voice of spoken words,
Listen as I speak.
I cry not for my self
The paradise of God lies beyond the grounds.
The blinders of earth,
Have blinded the lifeline,
Rebirth I wait for thy almighty
To bring me home.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
