Favorite Quote:
"To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing at all."

You drag me through the panel doors
There is no way out
I pry your strong fingers
As I scream and I shout

You've succeeded
and I am now trapped
Hungry and alone
In the face I was slapped

You've concealed me in your womb
Hidden and unheard
Oh how I long for the sun
And the sweet cries of the birds

I'm under your watch
And you have stolen my soul
But I'm stronger than that
And from that foal I have grown

I'm now a flaming stallion
Brisk, wild, and free
You think I'm your pet?
Well I control me

Like a leader should be
I'm mighty, I'm fierce
And those clothes you are wearing
They are incredibly sheer

The doors I break
With my Stallion strength
I'm unstoppable
At any length

I break out of your kingdom
And I'm finally free
Running like the wind
Nobody surpasses me

I'm now a flaming stallion
Brisk, wild, and me
I'm nobody's pet
Because I am strong
and I am free

The author's comments:
I have recently been crushed by my inner thoughts and emotions. I described those feelings as a man, as he would act towards a woman he loves, but doesn't want to lose. I was trapped, and no one understood. This poem helped me get through it.
