Caught

Caught

A Poem by JohnnyB

Caught in a prison, caught in a jail,
Caught in a lifetime of merciless hell,
Caught by mistakes made while blind,
Visions of failure invaded my mind;

Caught in a web, caught in a lie,
Caught by deception with my head in the sky,
Caught by the vices that claim the masses,
Just one of the many from all different classes;

Caught by lust, caught by greed,
Caught by desire, caught by need,
Caught by jealousy with a blistering rage,
Forever locked in a smothering cage;

Caught in sorrow, caught in fears,
Caught in distrust, caught crying endless tears,
Caught by depression that ruled my brain,
I thought I'd be drowned by the flood of rain;

Caught, but alive, I swam frantically to shore,
I searched and searched for an open door,
There were so many that I started to scream,
I thought I'd never escape from this awful dream;

But, alas, I awoke from my altered state,
And remembered I'm the one who chooses my fate,
Though dazed, still alive, the clouds finally lifted,
I realized in humility-I'm human, I'm gifted.

Clearly cut, words like razors, sharp and to the point. Very nice, it has a frantic ryhthm to it. Nicely penned :)

I read this is a sort of frantic, hurried pace. I love the rhythm.
