A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

Show me Something I've never seen
Take me where I've never been
To Lose these chains and fly
Leave these walls and kiss the sky 
Through great remorse be brand new
Which is a dream and which is true 
Now, my future is so violently torn 
From the life that I was born 
Am i a creature to be free 
Or trapped at birth by Destiny 
Conditioning leads me to the latter 
But Without freedom ..... Nothing else matters

This poem is so incredibly powerful. It hardly matters what position you're in, this one hits you like a brick in the face. Everybody feels like they are trapped at some point in their life. Be you in prison, a hospital, or simply at home living the life you planned out for yourself, there are certain rules in this world that keep us all tied back. You captured this idea wonderfully.
