I am restrained
limited in movement
unfortunately held back
frozen in time
unable to achieve
no longer deciding
told to eat
robbed of sleep
a caged bird
rat in cage
wish You’re here.

I am suffering
limited in joy
unfortunately held pain
frozen in hell
unable to feel
no longer floating
told to wince
robbed of zeal
back to start
for whom bells
murder of one.

I am excuses
limited in now
unfortunately missing out
frozen in stone
unable to inhale
no longer seeking
told to go!
robbed of self
I waited patiently
it is well!
asleep in light.

    I really like the lines: “for whom bells
    murder of one.”
