Instant - Poem by Lola Sanchez

Confined within these walls
wanting to break free
trying to scratch my way out

Listening to droning voices
talking about molecules
indigestion and digestion
Releasing stomach acids
breaking the bonds of molecules
Just add water

Instant freedom
complete with rebellion and battle
Just add water
To break away from structure
to break free from similar groups
to initiate a reaction
Just add water
