This Prison

I feel like I am trapped.
This hell, 
this place of torment,
that never ends.

I fear I will never 
get out.
Never get beyond
the grasp of here.

I feel I live in limbo,
existing, but not living.

My decisions are not my own.
My actions are made based on

Yet here I stay,
without having anywhere
else to go.

I do not like anything about this,
I wish I could fight against it,
but what are the consequences?

Where could I go?
How would I live?

I want out of this place so bad,
these walls confine me,
this containment kills me,
I really hate this prison 
I am in.
