One Day

I’m screaming out into the dark

My hands reaching out between the bars

Begging for me to open my eyes

I rattle and shake the bars

I kick at the door and the chain trying to get out

Trying to break free

I know you’re there

I know you can hear me

Please stop turning away!

We can get through this together

I yell to myself

I know it’s all in my mind

It’s all there and I don’t know why

I try to fight

To push and to pull, anything to lift this veil keeping me here

This cage is too strong and I don’t know how to just open the door

I’m tired from fighting this war

So I sigh deeply and sit back down on the floor
