Let me out

Like an inner child running wild
Where age now tells me no
An ancient beautful fame, now
In an old woman's frame

Like a spirit so grand
Just waiting to expand
Locked in it's infant cage
Waiting for death to turn the page

Like a butterfly snug
In a cocoon getting ready
The shell is crisp
And wings are spreading

Like expressing myself fully
Raising myself with pen as pulley
Breif but universal
All with in the parameters of a poem
Screaming "Let me out!"

(A rewrite of Caties poem)

    Iread your comment, and i cant help wonder why you would say that to me. I do not love him, no, not at all. period! He only upsets me. It must be his mission. If he hates me, then we hate each other. :)

    I didn't dare tackle another poet's poem but you did well. I was surprised that my poem on adultery ruffled feathers. The task was to say how we would handle the problem. Since I never had to face it, I answered as honestly as I could pertaining to myself. I would hope I would be adult enough to not act without thought. Joyce

    Nice to get those words out when they are churning around inside. A poem waiting to be born finds birth when that pen does the job! Your last line is so true! Luv, Lizzie
