Favorite Quote:
Giving up doesn't mean you're means you are strong enough to let go...

Trapped - in a hole with no air
I gasp for a breath-
I try to climb to freedom
But I’m sucked back in-

Locked behind iron bars
I suffer through everything
Through the anguish inflicted
Desperately - calling for help-

No one hears my voice-
It vanishes - with my joy
Fades back with no remembrance
Echoes bouncing off of nothing

Hope develops with age
Escape feels so far-
Yet that miniscule flicker stays alive
Somewhere in the back of my mind

The author's comments:
Sometimes in life, we feel so trapped in situations or life...but there will always be a way out...there will always be hope.
