Can You Hear Me?
By: Sarah
Breathe in, breathe out
Eyes shut, mouth wide
Can no one hear me?
I’m screaming from the inside.
Numb hands, thick bars
Steel prison, cold cage
Can no one hear me?
I’m speechless with rage
Lying still, all alone
Wanting so much to rise
Can no one hear me?
I am struggling, my hands are tied
Wobbling legs, longing arms
Moving lips, moist eyes
Can you hear me now?
I’m alive, I’m alive
