Trapped

Trapped

A Poem by emptyinkwell
"

Does it ever feel like the walls are closing in on you?

"
Some frogs can jump to 7 feet
But the walls of the well are 8 feet tall.
Where water once was now lays a bed of dirt
And a single green rock that croaks.

It sees one small cloud through the stone frame above
And nowhere to go.

Foolish frog, to fall so far
Now's what's to come?
To patiently wait
For a foolish cricket to fall?

yeah, nothing is truly perfect in hindsight
Aww, so forlorn. Depression, like happiness, is a product of choices we are unaware of making.

no problem
This made me pity for the frogs as they are trapped. It also reflects how land has been turning dry and no water supply comes along the way and the land deteriorates into garbage. Well done!
