A Lonely Place - Poem by Joseph Tanner

A lonely place it is to be,
When the house is full and you have nowhere to run.
Doors closed everyway you turn,
Wanting to run,
Taken from behind,
Not ready for these closed doors.
I need to run,
I need to breathe.
I don’t want to break the barriers you’ve set up,
A hurdle I will leap over.
Strap me down,
I don’t want to be here anymore.
It’s a lonely place to be where I am,
Home is like a prison,
A place I’ll never be happy with,
Running, leaping, give me the keys to set me free.
