A prisoner in my own

I feel like a prisoner
Trapped within these four walls
Young I am
I should be free

I cannot take leave
Without causing pain
I cannot leave
Without hurting badly

I have only two
Kinds of freedom
Work and love

Take me away
I ask
That is all
I ask

Set me free
Like I should be
Make me happy
The way I am

Don’t let me be
The Phoenix
Who tries to escape
Its misery

Set me free
Let me no longer
Suffer this pain
Take me home

And let me be
Love me please
That is all
I ask…

    Your desire for freedom and salvation is a feeling I can strongly identify with. Your direct, almost succint, language really drives the desperation home.

    A poignancy to this one, like a trapped bird in a cage, it reads well, flows smoothly.
