Caged

hidden behind Bars

but i feel the Eyes

watching me

as i pace back and forth

in my cage

 

i can no longer

see the Stars

because my Sky is only black

and silver

 

the Floor beneath

me no longer feels warm

but cold, Metal sheets

hidden behind Plastic Grass

 

i try to Run

but am Cornered

on all sides, no Room to try

no Space to Run

 

i arrived strong

but felt my legs become Weak

eating the Slop

i am given

 

remembering

even as i feel my Mind go

longing for Family and Home

i roar in pain

 

WHY AM I HERE?
