My Cage

April 2, 2011
What will they say
What will they think
Shall I soar today
Or will I sink

Questions without answers
Filling my mind
Leaping like dancers
To unbalanced time

My doubts spin wires
Barbed with premature opinions
I build my cage
Before the key

I am fond of how you ended the poem, unrhymed. It threw me off at first, but it really adds to the sense of unease. The image of a cage being built before the key - amazing.

Thanks so much! I'm so glad you liked the ending, I was wondering how people would react to it. It's so nice to know people appreciate your work!
