Favorite Quote:
So close yet so far

“Mommy”, they cry!
How do you not see?
All they want is to be free,
Don’t you hear their plaintive cries?
Oh, can’t you see the tears in their eyes?
The pain they hold
Some gave up and sleep all day
Starve themselves, picking their health away
But other walk around in circles all day
Trying to find a way
Out of this prison, this cage, this zoo
Stick them in small enclosures
Denying them closure
Putting aside their emotional needs;
For all those who haven’t given up hope
I promise you’ll see a brighter day
Where the hurt will be taken away
And to all those who couldn’t bear the pain
Gave up, and slowly, painfully let themselves die
This poem is for you
Because I understand you
They said you were free
But they gave you freedom within a cage
