House Arrest

Under lock and key
no way of escape
yet everyone else 
is free to roam the streets
Sinking and sinking
suffocating under pressure
Treated as a little girl
with no escape
Can't make my own choices
Stupid me does as I'm told 
Left alone in a cold house
with no love
A long time from now 
till my release
it's been 22 years
with hope still far off
Many things binding me home
while the other child 
is as free as a bird
How can I escape?
How can I gain freedom?
because right now 
I'm rotting in prison

    What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your excellent poetry with us Corinne. Love, Carol
