Chained And Bound - Poem by Jackie Kirby

Chained an bound
she lays
Blood drips from
where he beat her
with his cane

Always controlled by a
man
She knew no better
For that was the way
she was raised

Looking up to the ceiling
recalling all
mistakes she'd made
That can never be erased
Just as a child there was no
way out

She chose to cross into a
dangerous world For
punishment to her was a
way of life
Shed not a tear

For in her eyes she
deserved to be punished
For stupid mistake
she made

Chained and bound
with tear filled eyes
she does
lay

Blood drips from he
beat her with
his cane

She lays alone in a
darken room
As she slowly drifts
away
