The same walls

June 16, 2008
By Amber Tilghman, Grenada, MS

What's it like outside these plain
four walls. I wish I could burst out of this box I'm trapped in. It's like
I have no choice and no voice stuck
in this place I'm forced to be here.
I see all the other kids so privledged and I am inside these same four walls
waiting for my chance to stand up
on my own and run far away from
this place, but until that day comes
I will just sit here inside these
same blank walls.
