Trying to escape,

I realize that I don't stand a chance,

I am chained,

A prisioner in my own life,

My own body,

My own family and home.


Escape is something that I wish for,

Knowing that my wish,

Will forever be denied,

I find ways to mask the pain,

By seeing the beauty,

That lies behind these chains,

These rusty, heavy chains,

That are dragging my down to my death,

But if you look beyond them,

And try really hard,

You can see the beautiful sunset,

Falling down with me,

Whispering to me that I will be okay.

wow, this is great. I like that it is just a brief glimpse into the soul. I wish there was less stated and more to assume or to think about, analyze, you know...more depth. I like the poem really, the chains are so beautifully represented really
