No Relief

May 30, 2008
By Gina Grant, National Park, NJ

restrained
restricted
caged
life behind bars
constructed by the guards
key tossed and lost
retrieval not an option
freedom merely an illusion
terminated dreams
lost hope
sleep well behind the barrier, baby,
get comfy
you've been sentenced to life
