Favorite Quote:
"This was because she knew few words and believed in none,
and in the world she was rather silent, contributing just her share of urbane humor with a precision that approached meagreness." -F. Scott Fitzgerald


I live in a cage


nothing too special



a steel barrier


a different kind
of world to live.



Every day I silently


listen to the wind
as it dances

freely through the



bars of my home.

I dream of

such careless freedom



though it never

makes it too far out
of my home.








But one day


the walls will
crumble down.


“Mayday, mayday,”




you will say.

But the air


will know what




I will say.


“Run away,”
guided by wind.





Until that

day will
grace me,

my home,




my walls.

I read lots of Ellen Hopkin's books, which inspired the style.
