NO ESCAPE

January 14, 2008
By Emma Prendeville, Diamond Point, NY

I need to get out
Stuck inside a cage
Nothing but bars
in front of and behind me
No escape

time just slowly runs by
tick….tick…tick…BOOM!
my time has expired
No escape

The wall are caving in
Like a sink hole
To the bottom of the earth
No escape

A scratch on the wall
Keeping track of my life
Wasted moments
No escape

Concrete everywhere
No views anywhere
No sun shining
No escape

Silence eroding
But inside it’s noisy
Deafening chaos
No escape

Their faces flashing
Photos remember
Their memories
No escape

Time’s up
Game’s over
Score in their favor
No escape
