If You Feel Trapped Think To the Bird

Poems and Life

As the Caged Bird Sings

When caged, only does the bird sing,

Caged within itself.

Searching for the meaning of freedom

To those as it caws to help

As its heart beats softly,

Following the tempo of the wind.

The bird claws at the cage

Tearing it apart from within.

Only through sunlight,

Does the bird find it's grace.

Spreading its wings to it

While freedom is within arms reach.

With wings spread, the cage breaks

As if the metal has suddenly become unbonded.

While the bird flies freely into the sunrise

And finds what it once wanted.

As the once caged bird sung,

It harps its new song.

Looking around for its purpose

As it watched the setting sun.

As the light embraced its wings,

Through strife it was sweetly heard.

Singing melodious tunes of joy

As with adventure it yearned.

For mystery is what prevails

As the unknown beholds the truth.

While the bird goes yonder,

To find what it suits.

To discover is to learn

As there is still much to see.

While the birds wings graze there air

And the sun to the sea.

Though the cage is now broken,

Restraints still incur.

But as one can break free, they can stand out through demure.

Through strife it sings,

and through sorrow it mourns.

While suitors befriend them,

And conformists scorn.

As the bird hovers over the sky,

With wind ruffling through its wings.

It graces the ground

As it echoes its hymns.

Through the sky,

streaks of pink line the horizon.

With the glimmer of life,

As one can spot the one lone mizen.

As the day seizes,

Swiftly the bird lands.

Settling into the warmth

Of the tree's wide, snaggly hands.

As it lays its head down to rest,

A last call is made.

With the low, moaning note

With what is made with haste.

With wings away,

The bird fades into the night.

Taking what once was granted,

But now is necessary for life.

With this, new bounds have been discovered,

But the continuity of the journey remains.

As the sun will rise again

And tomorrow will be a new day.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
