They tell me

They tell me I'm as free as a bird, but the only birds I've ever seen are caged.
They tell me that I am whole, but in my spirit wars are being raged.
They tell me that I can do anything and be anyone, but it's all lies.
They tell me that life will be good, but I'm fighting to survive.
They tell me that I will do great things, but they haven't got a clue
Because they're all blind to the truth, so we'll never know what to do.

i came across one of your poems and decided to read them all. i read your fiction and non fiction too. it amazes me how your able to call out human behavior and challenge it. your work is really great and i really enjoyed reading it. p.s. this one is my favorite!
