Confused


I feel the fire within…
Red hot embers
Covered with useless ash of self-restraint

I see the anger…
I look into the eyes of a person…pushed too far
Yet holding on…

The broken teeth of a caged tiger
The anguish of a ‘dam’-ed river
The urge to break free

I wonder why, I stop
I ponder why, I don’t fight…
Sometimes I wonder, why I wonder…

Useless circumnavigation
In this endless moor of civilization
Helplessly lost, yet hopeful of finding a way out

Now, I have a dream…
A desire…to once stand
And breathe…for me
