Inescapable

Cage By Parablev
Parablev@Deviant Art

I am the only one

Who never departs

Unremarked

Each morning I enter

Precisely as I passed

And each night I fall

Negligent into the same

Faithful vestibule

Like a catatonic monk

 

If it were another’s madness

I would be more obliging

A sympathizing prophet

Willing to claim or dismiss

(Weather permitting)

But so long as the reflection

Is mine cowardice persists

 

And so long as a cage exists

There is always a tenet

Brimming with fatal intent

And all the money in

The world could not make

The exterior any greener

Than the interior permits

 

The earth is a cage of sorts

And we stand here reckless

Certain of only one thing

That to clear a passage

For growth is to habituate

To another level of pain

  1. Cages are akin to the things that hold us that prevent us from growth and experience. In the end though it is up to ourselves to break free to explore our true selves. As long as we let pain govern our days we stay stuck where we are. You have given me a lot to think about Yves, very well done.
