The Voice

I heard a voice in the distance Crying in despair Looking around I saw no one Although someone was surely there As I walked closer the words were clear With a tattered heart I began to weep How can I help this broken soul? A strong will I must keep "I'm trapped inside these prison walls" I heard the voice once say "Please you've got to set me free For me to live another day" I turned around and to my surprise A reflection I could see It was then I realized The voice I heard was me
