Straitjacket

I have a dream Why it is not there I am ready to go Why I am stuck Desperate for freedom Yet unable to The baggage on my shoulder How long I have to carry I cannot break free Stuck in my head Going backwards Tied up in chains Nothing to hold on For hope and faith Covered in straitjacket Brawling my tears out Why this is happening to me Do I have to go through this Battling in turns and twists Body stale Mind rots Stubborn stains of negativity Barely grasping air On the surface Sustain sanity Too weak Voicing help Down Down Bubbling away Fading trace of me Remains Feeling pain Leaving world unrest © Sue Sanzz 2020
