    Push

    The jail bars are bent,
    From the neck up I emerge
    With a smirk,
    The self fulfilling prophecy
    Fulfills so well,
    Even from the neck down
    I swell with joy,
    A desired state of mind
    Lived only for a short time,
    But in that time I see
    What possibilities could be,
    My gaze locked on truth
    Seeing the surface beauty
    None the less enchanting me,
    It’s soothing song off in the distance,
    I wanna dance
    Captured in its rhythm,
    As it fills every pour with bliss,
    I push my control emphatically
    Moving closer vertically
    And waiting patiently,
    For a beast to lose
    Its trickery,
    It’s stomach is full
    Yet it hunts me fully,
    Will it pass me over?,
    If the fear is lower,
    So I’ll push to be,
    Trapped on it’s hunting grounds,
    Suffering for it’s insatiable needs,
    My seeds have sprouted,
    So I push to be free.

    The emergence from fear and other ills takes time, but it's worth all the effort. Enjoyed the rhythm of movement in this piece.
