The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
A haunting, lonesome song
Peering through the bars of steel
Afraid of a world unknown
 
It longs for freedom, wants to fly
A chance to stretch its wings
But days go by, its movements are
No more than flutterings
 
But truth be told, should it escape
T'would have nowhere to go
Its fearful heart is shuddering
Coz deep inside it knows
 
That not all cages are man made
Sometimes they're in the mind
And often times these are the ones
That have the strongest bind

Love your poem as it tells of loneliness

This is a nice poem! The theme is powerful and deep which for me make for the best poems. I do feel that some of your rhyme scheme feels a little forced, maybe you don't need to rhyme in every stanza or if you do then spend a little more time finessing the weaker ones.
