Bound and Gagged

Passing shadows
Have no care
Caught
Like a helpless hare
Ensnared

I want to fly
But the sky
Refuses
My want to soar
And more

Speaking but
Not heard
Muted
By life’s
Demands

Creating nothing
Apart from emptiness
Left
Alone
In the dark

Trying again
And again
Afraid
Yet not wanting
To lose hope

Wanting to focus
To drown out the world
Bound
By the paradigm
I live in
