How Do I Escape This Prison - Poem by Bee Kilpatrick

Repeatedly looking for what was lost
As a young child
The insanity I observed
Was not without cost
And I ask myself
How do I escape this prison

A long line of mistakes
Does it matter how much I am aware
Of the beating that I took while I was there
Or is there something else holding me here
And I ask myself
How do I escape this prison

Barbed wire with razor sharp edges
Are the thoughts and words
That I have heard
While I was there
And I ask myself
How do I escape this prison

And I ran away when I was seven
On a path that took me through the years
And I ran when I was 20 and 30 and …
And I find myself here
And I ask myself
How do I escape this prison

Running was no escape
So I decided to turn and confront the beast
So knight in shining armor sword in my mouth
I questioned the beast until there were no words left
And he asked me
How do I escape this prison
