Bound - Poem by Sarah Cotnam

i was taught, i was trained
can i give up my own way?
well i was locked and i was chained
cant see my shadow front of me
i don't know, i don't know you
but you locked me up too
i was hoping to get threw
hoping to be unlocked by you

but that idea could never be
you never had ability
i really thought that you knew how
and if you do the tell me how

but you could not allow me free
you kept me locked
hiding your key
and that hurts more than you could know

so leave me here 'cause i can't go
