    there are no walls
    yet my words, my thoughts are still confined

    there are no doors to unlock
    yet my mind dares not to escape

    why am i here?
    in this cage which feeds my every fear

    my physical eye cannot see
    but my soul calls out in a desperate outcry and plea.

    i cannot overthrow this mental incarceration alone
    it is with me, as i stand, where you too belong

    you are like me
    encaged in this confinement of hell
    born inside, you crave for a different realm

    if life would only provide me with substance,
    substance to sustain my ongoing desire
    it is by fate that escaping this cage i must conspire

    my thoughts must reveal themselves
    my words must be heard
    and my actions must be observed

    it is from none other then this cage
    that society has nurtured my ignorance and concealed my rage

    my soul must survive
    no longer will i forfeit in dispair
    in escaping this cage, i must be - aware.
