You Can - Poem by Rae Carroll
You can’t get out, it stays trapped inside
There was never a doubt, it’s all a lie
The danger is you, it’s a siren call
Of the hunt, of the people mauled
Man or not which is you?
It hurts a lot, but is it true?
A doubled sided coin in the air
Which side will it land on, do you even care?
Claws and teeth, your weapon of no choice
Crying your pain in a silent voice
Born each night, with no innocence
Why do you sing, is it to be heard?
No one listens, not even the birds
Why are you here does it make any sense?
The pain of your skin is just far to immense
Where is the bliss, the end so near
Is it all an illusion, a trick in the mirror
Why can’t I go yet? what purpose do I serve
Why am I trapped here? What curse have I earned
Why can’t I go and die peacefully
As every human being has a right to be
