Trapped! - Poem by Liz Munro

I find the exit sign from which I can escape
from this prison negativity's put me in,
And I can see the way to break free
from people's, friends and even family's putdowns on me.

But something dark blocks the path in front and stops me
Chains suddenly appear and bind my naked feet,
Biting silver snakes keep me held
to the stone-cold cobbled floor.

I can no longer escape,
the lit exit sign taunts me, as it disappears back into the darkness,
and it is leaving me helplessly trapped! in it's departing wake.
