Need To Get Out! ! ! ! - Poem by Justin Henry

It seems like I'm trapped once again,
within a cage, with walls of two foot glass,
and it lies beneath the abyssal sea.
Things are so dark, its too wet to light a candle.
Sorrow is an enigma, I'm compelled to unriddle.
So bitter is this trap......
The worst part is that I'm alone,
no one is here to heal my scars.

It seems as if I'm dying race,
or mabe its just simply dead.
Its so cold.........
and I feel like I've grown older than I am.....
I'm running out of air.......
At least I'm not hungry........
Well not for these corpes anyway.....
Poisoned water drips plenty..........
These bodies are putrid.........
am I really one of them.........
Well I'm gunna be soon..........
I'm not sad.........just disapointed
Just angry.......don't know at who or why
wrath..........failure
turmoil......... .insanity
struggle..........death
I need to get out! ! ! ! !
Must escape this torment! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
This prison! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

I know whats at stake, just my humanity
I just want to reach the top, and see the sun
