Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings 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 fearful trill of the 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.

So do you recall those super trendy necklaces that we carried our lip balm in during the ’90s? Well, you’re in luck, because they’ve now introduced an adult version of this nostalgic gem.

 

Lilu Lip Care has recently come out with a sterling silver lip balm necklace, and we couldn’t be happier to be able to take our balm with us wherever we go, pockets or not.  No one will ever know, until you of course untwist the cap and apply it like a secret ninja.

 

They’ve made four different styles, all of which are made from sterling silver, and are specially designed to hold their lip balm pearls.  There are also four different balms to choose from, including Radiant Red, Perfect Pink, Simple Shimmer and Berry Blush. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with choosing one, you can always go for the assortment pack.

 

These necklaces are rather high-end, priced at $149. Although it may be a whole lot more than you spent in the ’90s, this one is made from quality products and there’s no price on nostalgia.
