"One doesn't need to paint to share a point of view. One doesn't need to speak to express their feelings. One does need wisdom and intelligent to view the world behind my words on blank pages."

I'm kept inside by the black flames we call fear.
The sun feels nothing but pain on my skin.
The skyline is falling down on me.
In my cage is nothing but the safe feeling we call hope.
The sun dies down until it rises again.
But until then I'm free to roam the earth.
The moon is the only one who been kind to me.
My smile is nothing but a dark grim.
Only if others understood.
By then I would have more than the moon as a friend.

The moon is the only one who's been kind to me...

Well, I like the poem. This shows how the society is just unfair and misunderstanding :(
