Looking out the Bars

by Christopher

Age Group: Adult



Looking out the bars at burnt sky
past a dead tree a light but not a ray of hope so asking myself
how did I get here one of the voices spoke
A man and a woman once conceived a child
this child a boy was cut from the womb and put in a cage
with no knowledge the child grew happy alone caged and smothered but knowing no better
So the man and the woman raised there span watching closely from dusk to dawn
And so he sat in ignorant bliss until the day he saw through his bars some young children playing ball
And though he longed to play freedom was far away
So the boy he sat curled in dismay
Looking out the bars at burnt sky
past the dead tree a light but not a ray of hope so asking him self
how did I get here
it was then he saw a bud growing down from the death of the tree so he reached and plucked it
it was from the buds beauty its shinning delight the rose did grow
he cut his chest open where then he tended the bloom and fed it his own heart
but with all he did with all he tried it began to wither and die
It angered him so he tried to break free in vane and pain grew in the void from which the flower devoured his hart so then and forever more he sat
Looking out the bars at burnt sky
past the dead tree a of light but not a ray of hope asking him self
how did I get here how did I get hear
chained up and crying how did I get hear
screaming and scratching into his face how did I get hear how did I get hear
how did I get hear how did I get hear
