Cold lies


dead eyes


in the mirror


fear kills her


chains bound her to lies


can’t breathe


is she really alive?


Society controls her


holds her


pretends to love her


yet she endures


doesn’t know better 


she’s been conditioned


Told how she should and shouldn’t be living


a nine to five


in a four by four cell


trapped in hell


stress and pressure


is so deafening


policies and companies


so life threatening


a swift death


is so tempting


can envision


many ways to die


until she opens her eyes


to uncover all the lies


quits without notice


passes her ID to the boss


“Here hold this”


throws up a peace sign


with one finger missing


feels the breeze


and the rays of the sun


like its the first time


embraces the change


goes against the current


while everyone stays 


or goes another way


Her eyes mirrored through glass


they are shining as if they were entrapped


and now screaming “free at last”


a smile unfolds on her face


as she walks her own way
