What a beautiful and touching write. I can picture this bird in the cage, incarcerated for life. I love the title you have chosen.

I also enjoyed the title of this poem. I believe you are using the bird as a metaphor and the bird is you. Thoughts can be very overwhelming at times. Sometimes people are trapped within their own mind and there is nothing we can do. And even though we smile it's hard for anyone to see we are trapped inside. The ending is lovely as well. You brought the wording around and told us that you are the one who is trapped. Beautiful!
