She watched the world through a glass window
The real world
How she desired to touch
To breathe
To move
How she envied the couples who walked by
With their bony hands intertwined
Her own plastic feet were glued to the floor
She watched the living walk
Unorganized and imperfect
Slouching, yawning, burping
While her own body stood poised
Tall and perfectly sketched and carved
Why couldn’t she be normal
Why couldn’t she be real

Somewhere out there someone is laughing. They are looking down on us in our big round room, all pushing and scratching and drowning in each other, and laughing. Because they know, that they're not going to let us out.

this one is fantastic too....you're saying alot of cultural importance even while keeping it simple.  .. you should write more and put it on!
