The invisible bars are strong More than what's in front The lines blur as does the mind Flickering and meaningless. The bright light is undying Constant as the shame, The pain of one in chains And of a life lost. Gone forever but memories The muffled cries Faint and hopeless A lifetime, an eternity.



They said it would rain. Everyone waited. The strongest trees to the delicate blooms. The world turning golden, the greens fast disappearing. Hope reduced to a distant rumble as the twenty fours hours ran to thousands of seconds and minutes. Stretching with no end in sight. Mother Earth cried out, begging for mercy. The streets...

She walks faster As voices drive her Falling, stumbling She runs. Static, she watches Words waiting to be free Emotions to escape She closes her eyes. Weary, she is of the constant noise that breaks the silence She desperately craves. Run, wait, watch words fight it out Silence breaks Free at last!
