I have a tension within my chest
That calls me from inside
And says

This room is not the place for you,

Go and witness the world.
I have a need to stretch my legs,
Open my eyes,
Remove the glasses that don’t allow me to see.
I need to leave this room I’m in,
This air won’t let me breathe.

I really like your poetry :) This actually kind of inspired me with the glasses line to write a poem. Keep up the great work!
