This is the saddest poem
I ever had to write
I close my eyes and dream
That I’ll be home tonight
I’m gone but not forgotten
So far far away
After doing what I did
This is the price I pay
I’m caged within these walls
With one chance to be free
I hear my conscience call
Telling me to face reality
This is the saddest poem
I ever had to write
I’m so far far from home .
So far from paradise
I’m in my deepest depression
Which I can barely hide
Within this poetic session
To you my feelings I confide
Now I understand
Why the caged bird sings
He sings for his freedom
And for his family he feigns
This truly is the saddest poem
I ever chose to write
A poem revealing feelings.
A poem of my life

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels.
The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes -
the ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo.
They push the human race forward.

CloudedCrystal summed it up. Beautiful.

This is...beautiful. I love it. The title fits with the poem and the poem flows with the words...beautifully! Awestruck.
