Freedom - Poem by Barbara Harris

let me out...let me out... of this house, NOW!
I need to breathe, get away from things, let me out, NOW!
I hear you talking but im tunning out, please let me out.

I can't understand what your saying ma, no disrepect but the anger light keeps flipping, leave me alone, leave me alone.
my hands are shaking, my nerves begin to pop and break, my brain is having an earthquake, I need to awake.

the wind hitting my face, it an emergency officer, i need to get away, they try to chase me, but i out-race them.
