Why?


I already know *my* answer to this...but I'd like some view points...

My question is...Why *DOES* the caged bird sing?

Any thoughts? Anyone?

Because that is there gift, their purpose, there passion...whether they are in a cage or not.
Good thought to end an evening on...maybe I should close my eyes to my environment and learn to sing again

What is your answer?

The caged bird sings, in my opinion, because that is where he/she feels safest. Don't we all sing when things are they way they're supposed to be...when things are the most comfortable...when we feel the safest? *wink*

Birds feels safe cause the cage is keeping predatores out and not it in...

Interesting answer, Cobra. Thank you for pointing out the blindly obvious. Couldn't have said it better, myself.

You said the same thing. I didn't see your answer until the moment I clicked 'post'.

Your question got me pondering, how, it's all a matter of perspective, needs, intent. Some might feel caged in, while others might feel safety.

Would you, do we, feel safety or restricted if I held you or when we hold others in our arms? It got me thinkin, how holding someone is very similar...

If you set it free...it dies. The irony, 'eh?

Cobra...in the D/s lifestyle, the submissive is the bird. The submissive is the one that sings when "caged" because, for us, that is our only true freedom.

And yes...I guess I did say the same thing, to some extent...but your words were much more eloquent.

As for holding someone, I suppose it is a tad restrictive to some. To other's it's suffocating. I don't like to be held (can you believe it?) and yet...for the right person, I can melt in an instant just by a hug or a kiss on the forehead and so on.

It's all relative, I suppose...It was just something that I was pondering and wanted some input from others. I'm glad I asked. *wink*

So why is it that we care, why is it that we try to justify, is it because we question our position as a master, because the control gives us pleasure and fulfillment? Do we really love the song or do we admire the defiance, dignity and self respect of a creature who was meant to be free and yet not only will not, but can not be free? Does a caged bird exhibit it’s beauty to show appreciation or does it have a need for appreciation and therefore shows its beauty. Does the caged bird sing because it doesn’t know any better or is because it knows better than us that happiness, peace and freedom must ultimately take place from within?

    Quoting rm_formywife22:

Just to clarify, for those who are reading this blog...the caged bird is in referrence to a submissive...the cage is our Master...or the D/s lifestyle...the song, is our gift of submission.

To answer ForMyWife22's blog response...

Why do we care? That's a good question. I don't know that it's because I need an answer, perse`, it's more I'm interested in the view points of others. From reading your response, though, I dare say that there are many that do care. Would you be one of them? From my point of view, I think there's a sense of admiration for the defiance...the inner struggles and the will to defeat them...and yet an appreciation and recognition for the song (the dignity) because the song is freely given. It is a gift.

You asked if the caged bird exhibited its beauty to show appreciation or does it have a need for appreciation and therefore it shows its beauty...I would say most assuredly yes, to both. They go hand in hand. One is not without the other.

I'm not sure that I would agree that "the caged bird" sings because it knows that happiness, peace and freedom must ultimately take place from within. I think it's a daily struggle for us "caged ones" to see that the elements spoken of *are* within us. We rely on those who are the cage masters to show us those things, that we cannot see for ourselves. But...does it sing because it doesn't know any better? I know that there are many submissives, in the world, who don't know any better...most submissive's don't even know what submission is...they exude it, they own it, they live it...but don't have a name for it...so yes, maybe they don't know any better and sing their songs, as gifts, to those who will hear them and accept their gift just as freely as it is given.

My heart bleeds, though, for the submissives...the fragile birds...who have no one to cage them...and therefore cannot sing. What a sad thing it is, to be free when all you really want...is a warm safe cage to dwell in.
