    Like the caged bird,that just wanted to sing
    I feel trapped and engulfed by misery
    No,not the misery the feeling of uncertainty
    I know my father is the only one who may understand
    But once I voice my opinion it's like bombs over baghdad
    Searching for a place and space to call my own
    I tried to reach out,but only found a brick wall
    Seperating me from recieving my happiness
    Maybe it's because this Earth is imperfect
    Or just the thought of someone ruling me
    Hurts my stomach
    Like worms eating out my insides
    Body decomposing and my spirit flies
    Only waiting for someone to wake me up inside
    It's strange how one can feel such a strange tugging on the heart
    But not know the reason for the symptoms
    If I told you exactlly what was wrong
    There'd be no reason for this poem/song
    I'm keeping my emotions hidden so I gotta let this poem cry
    This may continue,because they won't let me live..........

    (Hello,family I've been out of town here lately and very busy.I've written some new things for you and I hope you like......love Sens...) :wave:

    Letting the poem cry out in ways too difficult to explain. Your images reached in and grabbed me, they were so vivid. Wonderfully posed, little sis. So glad to hear it's starting to change.
