Free Bird


DANNIJO necklace and cuff bracelets, H&M top

Got my hands on some sick DANNIJO jewelry and all of a sudden a mini late morning photo shoot session happened on my bed. The pieces make me feel like a lady, a warrior, a princess and a queen. Putting on just one piece embodies every bad ass thing I want to be as a woman. Even when dressed in all delicate white, I feel bolder and cooler than ever with my DANNIJO on. What more can a girl ask for?

I was thinking of my favorite Maya Angelou poem the other day, and thought it would be fitting to incorporate into a post now that I feel much more like a free bird myself, as well as having the feelings of both kinds of birds that Maya speaks about close to heart. 

****

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange suns 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 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.

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.

- Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

Just a reminder to keep pushing yourself to be free to be pursue what you love most.
