"My head's so tired but I don't care, no I don't
Outside the sky looks like it's burning down but
I won't fear, no I won't
Falling down like angels fighting
Stars and lightening hold me tightly" - Hazel: by Cavetown


Trapped
No, not in a box, a different way
Trapped by the peer pressure of today

Trapped by judgement
Accepting the different… unrealistic
I am trapped by stress and many opinions
People will ask if you’re okay
You say yes anyway
It is difficult to express how I feel out loud
I can only express them with paper and pen

Trapped
In an artificial world
Fake people
Fake friends
Fake smiles
Fake laughs
What is this reality?
I can’t believe it doesn’t seem real to me

In this world perfect is what you try to be
Even though inside you are filled with anxiety
Trapped

You’re not perfect 
That’s okay
You can still succeed anyway
Even though opinions seem to overthrow you
Society today is not to real
I’m still trapped I don’t know why
Some things seem to go unexplained
Opinions still leave you feeling trapped
Don’t fall for the trap, stand up tall and don’t look back
Time is flying by
There is no time to sulk and cry

This piece should show people the view of how society can trap us at times and how we need to break free. Thank you, Delaney, this was my first poem and you helped inspire me to write it! Also, thank you so much Mrs. Yerou!
