Slave - Poem by Lauren Pandy

Kept a slave to your own rage
You're an animal locked in a cage
You feel nothing and care for not one
They all say you've come undone

You are no one going nowhere
You are nowhere without anyone
Yelling, kicking, screaming, biting
Bitching, taunting, shoving, fighting
Tell me, how did you get this low

Kept a slave to your own rage
You're an animal locked in a cage
You feel nothing and care for not one
They all say you've come undone

You threw everything you had away
All because you couldn't stay
You could be someone going somewhere
You could be anywhere without anyone

Your soul's full of hatred
Your mind is filled with bile
You say that there's nothing left to live for
Internally you have felt that for a while

Kept a slave to your own rage
Like an animal locked in a cage

If this is how it's gonna be
Then go away
Let me be free
Get out and stay out of my life
I'm done with your bullshitting strife

Kept a slave to your own rage
You've locked yourself in your own cage
