"KID YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

So...
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Alenn O'Shea
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!" - Dr. Seuss, "Oh! The Places You'll Go"


Hiding.
Waiting.
Will you notice me?
Wont you talk to me?

I sit.
I stare.
I know nothing beyond these walls.
I see nothing beyond this mask.

Watching.
Silently.
I stay beneath the shaddows.
I wait behind this mask.
Will anyone notice?
Does anyone care?

As I wait, in dispair, I think, "this isn't fair."
I'm locked away.
Inside my own head- my thoughts- my dreams..

Forever I stay.
I stay in dismay.
I think back to when it wasn't this way.

I think.
I reason.
I hear the voices come to an agreement.

Fearfully.
Cautiously.
I rais my hands to my prison.

Slowly.
Honestly.
My keys remove the lock.

Crashing.
Breaking.
Down falls this hell.

Free.
Free..
Finally- I am free...
