Poem 18 — Trapped

Trapped in reality,
Feeling like a prisoner,
I work so hard
Trying not to be broke,
Only to realize I work hard to be unfortunate.
Trapped in my thoughts,
They own me,
Guiding me in directions I never knew existed.

Trapped in love with a man
I couldn’t love even
If life was all it took to admit it.

Trapped in struggles that
Define the strength in me,
It needs no honor,
Just my undivided attention.
Trapped like a dragon in a bottomless pit,
Trapped like a bird
In a darkened cage,
Trapped outside reality,
Just trapped.
